Domestic violence is an issue of significant concern in American society. It is a social problem that affects families of every race, ethnicity, religion, and socioeconomic status. The City of San Diego designed the Family Justice Center model to assist families dealing with domestic violence by providing coordinated, collaborative services with different agencies in a one-stop center. The purpose of this study was to examine the perceived advantages and disadvantages of the Family Justice Center model in the City of Anaheim in assisting survivors of domestic violence. The study was focused on the perspective of the social workers and paraprofessionals working in domestic violence services in the City of Anaheim and surrounding areas.
A mixed methods survey was administered to social workers and paraprofessionals working at six different agencies in Orange County. Results add to the social work knowledge base and indicate that participants perceive that co-located services to have a number of benefits, including an increase in the collaboration between service providers, an increase in the collaboration between law enforcement and service providers, an increase in safety for the survivors of domestic violence, and an increase in the survivor's ability to access of services.
