The Hope Family Justice Center had its soft opening on Tuesday at the City of New Haven’s Opportunity Center.
HFJC consists of a team of professionals such as counselors, law enforcement and medical staff all under one roof to help provide coordinated services to victims of domestic violence.
There, victims can talk to an advocate, plan for their safety, interview with a police officer, and receive further assistance.
The center is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
It plans to open a permanent site in New Haven in March, 2019.
