Family justice center makes pitch for MAPS 4 inclusion - 7/12/2019

Palomar is seeking MAPS 4 funding to build a new, permanent facility. The family justice center, opened in 2017, brings variety of agencies together under one roof to provide, comprehensive services to children and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking and elder abuse.

 

Palomar’s current facility is temporary, and officials said they are outgrowing the space. The new proposed building would serve as a community healing and restoration center for survivors and their children, where Palomar could expand services, welcome more partner agencies and meet survivors’ holistic and long term needs.

 

Since opening, Palomar has had almost 24,000 client visits. The demand for coordinated services has exceeded everbody’s expectations. Oklahoma ranks as one of the worst states for childhood adversity and trauma. The state also has high rates of domestic violence.

 

Kim Garrett, CEO of Palomar, Oklahoma City’s family justice center met Tuesday during the first of four city council special meetings to hear presentations about potential MAPS 4 projects. 

 

Dozens of people wearing purple shirts in support of Palomar filled the city council chabers for Tuesday’s presentation. Several survivors addressed the council and urged city leaders to include Palomar in MAPS 4.
