You can visit an New York City Family Justice Center (FJC) to get connected to free and confidential assistance for victims and survivors of domestic and gender-based violence, which can include sexual violence, human trafficking, stalking, intimate partner and violence. All Centers are open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. No appointment is needed.
At any NYC FJC, survivors of domestic and gender-based violence and their children can get connected to organizations that provide case management, economic empowerment, counseling, civil legal, and criminal legal assistance. Located in all five boroughs, FJCs are safe, caring environments that provide one-stop services and support. Key City agencies, community, social and civil legal services providers, and District Attorney's Offices are located on-site at FJCs, to make it easier for survivors to get help.
All are welcome regardless of language, income, gender identity, or immigration status. Interpretation services are available on-site at every FJC, and locations are wheelchair accessible. Call ahead to request other accommodations.
