The Mary Parrish Center (MPC) is a unique non-residential program that provides access to a comprehensive array of services for domestic/sexual violence (d/sv) victims and their children during dangerous and/or critical times in their lives. They successfully collaborate with all major systems that impact the health and well being of d/sv victims. These systems include the health, housing, legal, law enforcement, and educational systems. This collaborative response helps eliminate obstacles d/sv victims may have previously faced in accessing available services. The grant is to provide court advocacy to domestic violence victims seeking Order of Protection (OP) at Juvenile Court and to greatly expand the number of dv victims and their children receiving long-term counseling so that 50% of victims who receive information from MPC will also receive counseling services.
