180 Turning Lives Around provides survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families with free and confidential programs and resources to process and heal from their experiences.
Impact’s inaugural grant of $145,000 to 180 Turning Lives Around funded the creation of a Family Justice Center (FJC) at the Monmouth County Courthouse in Freehold. The FJC enables 180 Turning Lives Around to coordinate trauma-recovery, child and adult mental health services, and housing/financial/legal support services in a streamlined manner in one location.
