Family Violence Outreach Program
If you are in immediate danger, call 911.
We do not operate a crisis line.
Our outreach program empowers survivors to reconnect to the community. By linking them to necessary resources and community supports, they are more likely to break free from the cycle of domestic violence permanently.
We use a strengths-based ‘wraparound’ approach to working with families and children who have complex needs. By collaborating with other service agencies and multiplying the efforts of professionals, we increase our capacity to support at-risk individuals.
The wraparound process uses and enhances the existing strengths of the participants, their team and their community to generate a holistic plan to address complex needs. Underlying wraparound as an effective and accountable intervention for at-risk individuals and families is a belief that, through wraparound, families and communities can “take care of their own.” By “wrapping” supports and services around at-risk individuals and families, rather than expecting them to conform to existing services, wraparound is inherently responsive to the individuality of participants.

I was afraid to leave my relationship because I didn’t think I could make it on my own. Then I met with the JMMF and found out how to do that safely. From making an emergency plan, to plan my leaving, how to afford it… If it wasn’t for their help, I don’t know where we’d be today.
