Description & History

The Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence (OCDV) formulates policies and programs; monitors the citywide delivery of domestic violence services; and works closely with community leaders, health care providers, City agencies and representatives from the criminal justice system to create solutions that are critical to preventing domestic violence in New York City. The New York City Family Justice Center, Queens (QFJC), an initiative of the Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence and the Queens County District Attorney's office, offers coordinated services to domestic violence victims in one location. Most QFJC personnel work for partner organizations such as nonprofit civil legal and social work service providers and other City agencies, including the New York City Police Department, the Department of Probation, the Human Resources Administration, and the Department for the Aging, among others.
