Solano Family Justice Center
The Office of Family Violence Prevention (OFVP), on behalf of a strong partnership of local government, law enforcement, courts and community-based organizations, continues to move forward with implementing the strategic plan developed for a Solano Family Justice Center (SFJC). The SFJC began operating in February 2011 to offer victims of child abuse, domestic violence, elder abuse and sexual assault an opportunity to build hope and new futures.
The SFJC operates under the auspices of the Solano County District Attorney’s Office and has recently relocated to 604 Empire Street, Fairfield. The District Attorney has indicated his strong support for a violence prevention approach and the partnership between the DA and the SFJC presents a unique opportunity for strengthening the DA's victim advocacy efforts. The Solano Family Justice Center provides the following on-site services:
· Confidential and non-confidential victim advocacy
· Court accompaniment
· Victim empowerment assistance
· Emergency services referral
· Victim/Witness assistance
· Resource referrals
· Access to domestic violence crisis shelter, domestic violence transitional shelter and counseling
If you are in need of direct services as a result of domestic and/or family violence, please call the SFJC Reception Desk at 707-784-7635 to arrange an appointment with or speak with an SFJC Staff Social Worker. While we encourage you to make an appointment to meet with SFJC staff, drop-ins are also welcome between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except holidays.
If you are a service provider interested in co-locating staff at the SFJC, please contact Kevin McAllister, Solano Family Justice Center Coordinator at 707-784-3339 or e-mail KDMcallister@solanocounty.com.
