KFJC Navigator Program

The Navigator Program provides victims of domestic violence with an individual assessment of their safety and other human service needs. With the assessments, KFJC’s navigators identify the needs of individuals and families so that they can connect them to nonprofit(s) and public agencies. In one location, KFJC’s navigators help individuals and families get access to the resources of our more than 60 community partners. Victims and family members receive criminal justice and social service help including planning for safety, support groups, counseling, accessing emergency shelter, legal services, and law enforcement.

The Services that Empower Survivors (SES) Program helps victims of domestic violence face the formidable emotional, financial, and physical challenges that accompany domestic violence. SES addresses barriers created by violence and the trauma that can keep victims of abuse from safety, self-reliance, and confidence. SES participants choose from a range of services including individual and family counseling; support groups; and help with needs like transportation, changing locks on homes, or interpreter services.

The CCR and Outreach to Underserved Program help those persons experiencing interpersonal violence who have not been served traditionally by providers and who are hard for local providers to reach. KFJC reaches these underserved and culturally diverse individuals using education, outreach events, and working with KFJC’s partners. KFJC connects identified survivors and victims needing help to resources and agencies, increasing safety and self-sufficiency while holding their abusers’ accountable. This program also oversees Knox County’s Coordinated Community Response Team, continuously seeking systemic change through a team of representatives from advocacy and public organizations like law enforcement, courts, 911, and probation and parole. The CCR team analyzes processes and finds problems with the systems encountered by victims of domestic violence. The team works together to identify and implement solutions, promoting system change.

The VOICES Program provides survivors of domestic violence with opportunities to pay-it-forward and to help others in the Knox County community. Members of VOICES contribute to continuously improving the Knoxville Family Justice Center’s services, and they help inform our society at large about domestic violence. Through VOICES, KFJC provides a voice to victims and survivors who receive lifesaving services as well as educating and heightening awareness in the Knox County community.
