Family Justice Center Focuses on Victims
New multi-agency office at Community Solutions in Morgan Hill offers gamut of domestic violence services
By Michael Moore - Morgan Hill Times


Domestic violence survivor Aidee Portillo Fernandez stood stoically before a roomful of South County media, law enforcement and nonprofit representatives as she described the horror her former spouse once inflicted on her.
“My abuser tried to kill me three times,” Portillo Fernandez said in Spanish at the July 23 grand opening of the Santa Clara County Family Justice Center. “I wanted my children to heal.”
Portillo Fernandez continued to describe how, once her abuser was in custody, it was inconvenient to travel to multiple offices throughout Santa Clara County to seek victim services and protection from her former spouse.

By Lindsey Rogers - WSFA.com

Her name is Willow and her is a two-year-old Labrador/Retriever mix. She was bred and raised by Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit organization that trains and provides assistance dogs. Her skills and disposition have made the professionally trained facility dog the perfect fit to work with victims at the One Place Family Justice Center- a victim advocacy center in Montgomery.

Experts: Strangulation assaults often mishandled

By Madeline Buckley

South Bend Tribune

The woman who called 911 was gasping for breath as she told the dispatch operator that her partner strangled her. But even as she struggled to inhale, taking shallow, choking breaths, she said she didn’t need a paramedic, minimizing the danger she was in.
St. Joseph County police and prosecutors heard the 911 call during a training session on Friday, a classic example of the aftermath of a strangulation assault.
