A Message from the FJC Director

The Bexar County Family Justice Center is supported by the Bexar County Criminal District Attorney’s Office, the Bexar County Family Justice Center Foundation and over forty community partners. Through this strategic and coordinated collaboration of agencies, we provide crisis support, legal assistance, counseling, and educational empowerment for our survivors. Our agency partners and advocates are extraordinarily talented individuals with a clear, shared goal: to break the cycle of violence and eradicate domestic violence in Bexar County one household at a time.

On average, the center assists close to 4,000 victims each year. Of those, a staggering 9 out of every 10 victims identify an immediate need for assistance in obtaining a protective order against their abuser, and close to 100% of victims experience financial abuse in their relationships. So many victims suffer silently, sometimes for years – imprisoned in a life controlled entirely by their abuser. Domestic violence does not discriminate; it is in every community regardless of race, gender, age, socioeconomic level or sexual orientation, and the cycle of violence can impact families for generations. I applaud the efforts of each and every advocate, attorney, counselor, liaison and administrator who fight tirelessly for victims of domestic violence every day.

We are located at 126 E. Nueva on the 2nd floor, right across the street from the old courthouse in the heart of downtown San Antonio. We are available to you and your business or school in whatever capacity you see fit in an effort to increase our community outreach and education on domestic violence. Also, if you are interested in touring or volunteering at our center, please do not hesitate to contact us. The work accomplished here is truly remarkable, and we would love to show you around.
