To celebrate this milestone, the Nampa Family Justice Center, located at 1305 3rd St. S. in Nampa, is hosting activities November 16-20 to honor survivors served, bring awareness to the free resources available, provide the community with an opportunity to be part of this life-changing work and open their doors to the community they serve.

Casey Gwinn, President of Alliance for HOPE International, will be making a special trip to Nampa for the celebration on November 16. Gwinn was the creator of the family justice center model and has been a support to the NFJC since its beginning. Gwinn shared, “The Nampa Family Justice Center has been such a beacon of hope for survivors of trauma, violence, and abuse for the last 15 years. They have set the standard for Idaho and similar communities across the country. It is challenging to maintain a dynamic collaborative of diverse agencies over many years, as Nampa has done, but when it works it is a powerful pathway to hope and healing.”

Nampa Family Justice Center Interim Executive Director Jeannine Strohmeyer shared a special message to abuse victims: “Hold on to hope. Yesterday is gone; there is always hope for a beautiful tomorrow. You don’t have to walk this journey alone; the Nampa Family Justice Center is here for you.”

According to the Alliance for Hope website, “There are currently more than 130 Family Justice/Multi-Agency Centers (FJCs) in the United States and hundreds of additional communities working to develop partnerships to create co-located services. Internationally, the FJC movement has gained strong momentum, including the development of the European Family Justice Center Alliance with initiatives in more than 20 countries. Around the world, community-based agencies are working with government entities to create more comprehensive responses to trauma-exposed children and adults.”
