The Family Justice Center co-locates multiple agencies in a safe and secure facility to provide coordinated advocacy, government, civil legal services and social services to victims of domestic violence and their children. The center is open to all and all services are free of charge. Victims can be helped in any language. Walk-ins are welcomed and no appointments are necessary.

The center, which is located at 600 Jefferson Plaza, Suite 500, in Rockville has a living room and kitchen facilities for clients, with a specially designed playroom for children.

The center provides victims with support and resources in a non-judgmental manner. Client assistants work with victims to create safety plans to protect themselves and their children. On-site therapists are available to respond to the emotional needs of victims and provide tools and support during the healing process. Counseling is also available for children who witness domestic violence.

Victims are provided with referrals to agencies that can directly assist with shelter, food, clothing and other basic needs. Attorneys provide pro bono legal assistance for protective orders and family law matters.

Police detectives and staff from the State’s Attorney’s Office assist victims seeking to file criminal charges.

More information about the Family Justice Center is available at or by calling 240-773-0444.
