Assemblywoman Joan L. Millman and Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes teamed up to collect donations for victims of domestic violence and their families served by the Family Justice Center. Millman’s office was one of the collection sites for the drive, which began in November. Suggested donations not only included food, but also shampoo, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes, diapers and baby food.
The Family Justice Center, 350 Jay Street, 15th floor, in Downtown Brooklyn, offers a wide variety of services to victims of domestic violence in the areas of housing, public assistance, criminal justice and counseling.
Providing these services, all under one roof, ensures that domestic violence victims only have to visit one office. The center employs 151 individuals from city and state agencies, universities and community and religious organizations.
