What is the Family Peace Center?
The Family Peace Center is a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary co-located service center in Rockford, Ill., that provides services to victims of inter-personal violence. Both public and private partner agencies assign staff on a full-time or part-time basis to provide services from one location. The facility focuses on reducing the number of times survivors tell their story and the number of places survivors must go for help, as well as increases access to services and support for survivors and their children.
What is the timeline for opening the Family Peace Center?
While we work on a permanent location, a temporary location will open in Rockford in 2020.
