Trachtenberg Joins Leaders in Celebrating Family Justice Center Service

Councilmember Duchy Trachtenberg attended a celebratory reception at the Montgomery County Family Justice Center (FJC), joining several instrumental county leaders who worked collaboratively to open the Center’s doors over 9 months ago. Trachtenberg shared with the audience that the Center was an ambitious vision in her first term in office and, looking ahead, she anticipates its expansion. The FJC serves as a comprehensive one-stop service shop for victims of family/domestic violence and their children.

Located at 600 Jefferson Street, Suite 500, Rockville, Md., the center co-locates multiple agencies to provide coordinated advocacy, law enforcement, civil legal services and social services for wrap-around support for families. To date, the FJC has served over 1300 individuals and families in crisis. Chief Deputy Sheriff Darren M. Popkin, Ambassador Connie Morella, Health and Human Services’ Director Uma Ahluwahlia, and FJC co-founder Casey Gwinn were among the reception attendees.
