Help Is On The Horizon.
Thank you for your interest in The Umbrella Center!
Since 2017, Safe Alliance and Pat's Place Child Advocacy Center, along with other community partners have been working diligently to establish a Family Justice Center in our community. Family justice centers are a national model which demonstrate proven outcomes in improving victim survival and are recognized as a national best practice. The Family Justice Center model involves the creation of a coordinated, single point-of-access center offering comprehensive services for victims of interpersonal violence. Our family justice center will be named The Umbrella Center and will open in late 2025.
The Umbrella Center is an innovative public-private collaboration that will provide holistic services at a single location for those impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, elder abuse, and human trafficking. The Center is designed to change each step of a victim's experience to help people recover their lives from police response to medical care, to advocacy and counseling, to legal and court procedures. When opened The Umbrella Center will co-locate partners to streamline case investigations, mitigate access barriers to effective care, and support survivors' healing after experiencing abuse.
We are excited to be part of this community project that will transform services for victims of abuse in our community.
