National partners

The FCEP, funded by the Office on Violence Against Women, included three national organizations that provided technical assistance (TA) to the four sites through dedicated TA Teams. These TA Teams were composed of representatives from each of these national organizations: the NCJFCJ, the Center for Court Innovation (CCI), and the Battered Women’s Justice Project (BWJP). Specifically, the TA teams helped these court systems determine how their procedures, practices, and structures related to custody and parenting time can reduce further violence and trauma and enhance victim and child resilience and well-being. More information on the FCEP partners can be found below.
