The Project

Domestic violence survivors often must contend with fragmented services, making it difficult to access the critical help they need to escape violence and poverty. Linnea specifically partnered with the Alameda County Family Justice Center (FJC), an innovative one-stop center where survivors can access services such as criminal justice, medical care, and counseling. This project brought integrated legal services to the FJC, helping survivors become independent through assistance with family law, public benefits and housing matters.
