In June of 2007, disturbed by the high incidence of criminal domestic violence occuring in our county and state, five local citizens formed the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was to become the Family Justice Center.
After three years of building community support, and through the generosity of Dr. Jerry Crosby, the Family Justice Center secured a facility in the City of Georgetown, South Carolina. With this acquisition, the long-held vision was finally realized with donations of time, labor and materials pouring in.
Finally, in January 2011, very quietly and with no fanfare, the doors were opened and people started showing up for help and services; they haven't stopped yet.
