Porchlight Family Justice Center seeks volunteers before opening in Fall

Porchlight Family Justice Center seeks volunteers before opening in Fall

Once open the PorchLight Family Justice Center (FJC) will provide comprehensive legal, emotional and critical supportive services for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, at-risk adult abuse, elder abuse and human trafficking. The center will be centrally located in Jefferson County, Colorado and be available for Westminster residents in need of their services.

The FJC will be a safe, caring environment that provides one-stop services and support. Key local government agencies, law enforcement, community, social and legal service providers, and District Attorney's Offices will be located on-site at the FJC to make it easier for victims and survivors to get help.

“The Family Justice Center will make it easier for victims to seek help, reduce the number of times a victim has to tell their story, and will improve accessibility of services and resources,” said Family Justice Center Director and prosecutor Candace Cooledge.

The FJC is looking for volunteers to help, once the facility opens this fall. Available volunteer positions include: Guest care volunteer, Children’s room volunteer, Administrative volunteer, Special projects/outreach volunteer and Intake Volunteer.

Those wishing to support, can help the FJC "Turn the Lights On" by donating, volunteering, or helping to spread the word. The organization’s goal is to raise $250,000 before opening their doors to the community. This will ensure the doors not only open, but they stay open to service our most vulnerable community members and decrease violent family crimes.
