European Alliance
for Hope and
Empowerment

There is A BETTER WAY to give extra hope to each victim of domestic violence…
The European Family Justice Center Alliance aims to develop and support local
Family Justice Centers all over Europe that help victims and their children find
all services they need in ONE PLACE: medical professionals, caretakers, counselors,
advocates, prosecutors, police officers and others.

Affiliation Process

Goal

The affiliation process of the European Alliance for Hope and Empowerment offers two levels of affiliation, each designed to reflect the individual needs of local communities, while ensuring adherence to best practices and trauma-informed approaches in service provision. These standards ensure communities are creating systems change and challenging the traditional way of providing services to victims and their families by bundling services and integrating critical service providers from the advocacy and criminal justice systems.

  • Affiliated European Multidisciplinary Models and
  • Affiliated European Family Justice Centers.
