Today, Mayor Berke was joined by Councilwoman Carol Berz and community partners to cut the ribbon for a new Family Justice Center (FJC) in Chattanooga. The FJC serves as a one-stop center for free services for victims of domestic violence. In the past, services for victims of domestic violence were scattered throughout Chattanooga, making them hard to navigate for women and children experiencing abuse. The Family Justice Center puts agencies under one roof, making services accessible and providing invaluable social work to help people experiencing domestic violence get justice and back to a normal life.
