Family Justice Center Sonoma County (FJCSC)

Family Justice Center Sonoma County (FJCSC) The Family Justice Center Sonoma County provides coordinated services and resources for victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Elder Abuse. Co-located partners include Community Based Organizations, Law Enforcement, and Prosecution.
The Family Justice Center of Sonoma County (FJCSC) represents an effective collaboration, using the three prong philosophy of Law Enforcement, Prosecution and Community-Based Organizations, which is expected to achieve significantly increased victim safety and offender accountability outcomes. The partners in the FJCSC came together to look for better ways to serve victims of family violence in response to alarming trends in the rates of violence, and to unify the existing disparate and inefficient approaches to service provision. Mapping exercises undertaken by partners indicated that victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Sonoma County were going to an average of 23 agencies to obtain needed services. This “agency-centric” service delivery model resulted in extreme frustration for victims and often contributed to their lack of ability to follow through with needed services and participation in offender prosecution. Trends in Sonoma County indicate that there has been an increase in domestic and sexual violence. Data from the Sonoma County’s District Attorney’s Office indicates that between 2003 and 2007, domestic violence related calls requesting assistance from law enforcement had increased 15% in Sonoma County, while such calls decreased 14% in California overall. The permanent site for the FJCSC opened in August 2011!

Hello June! It’s a new month, a good time to pause, assess and challenge yourself. Consider taking this 30-day mental health challenge. These are all bite-sized, daily things we can all do to take better care of ourselves so that we can continue to care for others. You are worth it.

As we start a new month, it is a great time to pause and take stock of how we are doing. It has been a challenging couple of months, to say the least, and as we kick off June, consider taking this 30-day mental health challenge. These are all bite-sized, daily things we can all do to take better care of ourselves this month so that we can continue to care for others.

Join the Family Justice Center Sonoma County (FJCSC) to celebrate #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day of giving back in response to COVID-19. #GivingTuesdayNow focuses on different ways to give back, not just financially, but also through acts of service and kindness.

Did you know that the FJCSC has helped over 9,000 people since we opened our doors in August 2011? The number of clients and services available increase each year. Even during these times, we are here for victims and survivors because sheltering in place is not always safe for many families.

Please consider participating in #GivingTuesdayNow and let us remember to spread kindness, support our community, and give generously today.

En este momento de incertidumbre, es muy normal sentir ansiedad, miedo y sensaciones de cambios en nuestros cuerpos. Para los sobrevivientes de trauma, incluso puede activar respuestas similares en nuestros cuerpos que sentimos durante el abuso o evento traumático. Estos sentimientos no durarán para siempre y no estás solo. Sé amable y gentil contigo mismo.

Si necesita servicios en este momento, comunícate con la YWCA del Condado de Sonoma 24/7 Línea directa de violencia doméstica al (707) 546-1234 o la línea de crisis sobre abuso sexual de Verity al (707) 545-7273. Para obtener información sobre las órdenes de restricción, llame al Equipo de ayuda legal contra la violencia doméstica de lunes a viernes, 9am a 5pm al (707) 595-6295.

Órdenes de restricción temporales han sido extendidas por cinco días. Las órdenes de restricción temporales que se deberían vencer entre 3/16 y el 3/31, han sido extendidas debido al COVID-19 y el cierre judicial. Esto no se aplica a las órdenes de protección de emergencia.

In this time of uncertainty, it is very normal to feel anxiety, fear, and a change in our bodily sensations. For survivors of trauma, it can even activate similar responses in our bodies that we felt during the abuse or traumatic event. These feelings will not last forever and you are not alone. Be kind and gracious to yourself.

If you need services at this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to the YWCA of Sonoma County 24/7 Domestic Violence Hotline at (707) 546-1234 or Verity’s 24/7 Rape Crisis Line at (707) 545-7273. For restraining order information, call the Legal Aid Domestic Violence Team during business hours at (707) 595-6295.

Please note: Temporary restraining orders are extended by five days. This applies to temporary restraining orders that were issued which would otherwise expire from March 16, 2020 through March 31, 2020, and the court is unable to conduct proceedings to determine whether a permanent order should be entered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This five-day rule does not apply to emergency protective orders.

In an abundance of caution, we are canceling all on-site group activities and meetings until further notice. Our priority has always been, and continues to be, safety for those that we serve. As we work hard to keep our center safe through increased cleaning and disinfecting measures, we request that any clients who may be sick call 565-8255 to discuss services, rather than coming in. We will keep you updated as changes occur. Thank you for helping us keep FJC safe and healthy for our staff and clients!

Hey friends! I wanted to announce that there will be a Childbirth Educator course being offered July 20-29th taught by Juli Tilsner and Nickie Tilsner of Cornerstone Doula Training. Our wonderful teachers are coming down from Portland to teach their amazing curriculum to interested individuals who would like to become a Child Birth Educator. Earning the certificate means that you can teach classes within your community; either at community centers, out of your home, hospitals, clinics, birth centers, wellness centers etc. I got certified as a birth and postpartum doula as well as a childbirth educator. When I am not doing my doula work, I can offer classes to expecting families who wish to learn more about labor and delivery. The course is tailored to either homebirth, hospital or birth center scenarios. For those who are already birth professionals, here is a great chance to add more skills to the services that you offer to your clients. The workbook and readings required for the class are informative, fascinating and empowering. The all-inclusive language allows for educators to make sure all clients of all background can benefit from taking a childbirth education class. in addition, there are teacher workbooks offered in Spanish, as well as a teacher workbook that is dedicated to our Muslim friends and their practices. The courses will be offered at the beautiful Marin Birth Center in Terra Linda, an extension of the Marin City Health & Wellness Center. This will be the first course ever offered by Cornerstone Doula Training at the Marin Birth Center. Easy to get by public transportation, free parking and carpooling is highly encouraged! The opportunity will also allow those who take the class to familiarize themselves with a freestanding birth clinic and to meet and network with other professional birth workers. You NOT need to be a doula to take the class. Moms, dads, nurses, high school students-ANYONE, can attend. If anyone has any specific questions you can PM me, text, or email me, Juli Tilsner,and/or Nickie Tilsner. To find out more about the course and what else is offered through Cornerstone Doula Training, please go to their website:
