The Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center at the YWCA serves victims of domestic violence by providing access to many different critical resources under a single roof to provide better coordinated, seamless services for male and female victims and survivors. The Center brings together specialized services in one location where victims can report domestic violence related crimes to the police, obtain assistance with protective orders, speak to a victim advocate, contact a prosecuting attorney to learn about the criminal process or discuss a pending criminal case, find shelter, housing and support groups, and obtain employment and job training.

Services are available to victims and their families on a walk-in basis, regardless of the need for shelter. Each person will receive personalized advocacy. Bilingual and translation service available.
