5 – Program Speaker – Hillsboro Chief of Police – Family Justice Center
Lee Dobrowski – Hillsboro Chief of Police
95 Family Justice Centers in the US. FJC’s were supported by Bush and Obama
Strive to meet all the needs of victims. Services should include: trauma and informed care.
FJC’s strive to hold aggressors accountable so families and communities heal and thrive, generational cycles of violence is broken, hope is restored and we all work together
WCCCA DV Calls – over 1000 in Beaverton and Hillsboro each. Over 1800 to WCSO alone.
Path to healing and hope is daunting and includes: restraining orders, food and housing assistance, transportation and legal aid, transitional issues, safety, child care, court appearance assistance. FJC’s aim to support all of these areas.
Aim to reduce # of places needed to visit with kids on a bus, etc. It is difficult to access services and victims are often abused while doing so.
Opening 1st of December
Domestic Violence is the root of many homicides in WC
Since 2000 there have been 125 slayings, 31 of which were done by a current or former intimate partner. 22 more have died in family violence (including kids killed by parent)
Cost of murder prosecution is $1-1.5 million. Lifetime cost of imprisonment is $1 million
FJC goal is to end generational effects of DV on children. Stop today’s children from becoming tomorrow’s victims and abusers.
On average it takes the victim 7 tries to get out of an abusive situation
With FJC, victims are more likely to remove themselves from abuser and stay away, more likely to appear at trial and follow through, lethality diminishes. DV homicides are reduced up to 50%.
The FJC has support from all of WA county
Location will be 158th and Walker in old Arbor Homes building
Would like to eventually open a shelter.
DVRC is moving into FJC building
Need to raise $1.8 million annually, this does not even pay family service agencies, they are coming in with own budget
Going after government grants, fundraising etc (Washington county non profit, Rotary, county community groups, etc)
Planned 230 Seat Fundraising Event for September 30th to include: dinner, dance, auction and a survivor speaker. Goal to raise $100,000 website (donate there)

Will provide access to restraining orders under more private circumstances than are currently available.
