President's Family Justice Center Initiative

This page provides technical assistance for Chaplaincy programs of the Family Justice Centers across the country. Safe Havens uses the resources below during Chaplaincy Program trainings.

This brochure helps screen potential Chaplaincy volunteers before any training takes place. The Brochure presents some of the special qualities that are necessary to be a safe and effective PFJCI Chaplaincy volunteer.

This document includes guidelines to make sure Chaplaincy Services are voluntary, non-coercive, inclusive of all faith communities, and not exclusive of any particular faith.

This document sets out five protocols that Chaplaincy Service programs need to adopt to provide safe, confidential, and effective services to victims of domestic violence.

This resource presents ways to enact the protocols set out in Manna in the Wilderness, including creating an open, welcoming, and safe setting.

This document discusses the importance of faith and spirituality when addressing domestic violence.

The purpose of this document is to give you information about outreach and training that can be offered to faith-based organizations in your community.

In December 2008, Rev. Dr. Anne Marie Hunter, Director of Safe Havens presented this webinar. The purpose is to explain the history behind Safe Havens' involvement with the President’s Family Justice Center Initiative and the technical assistance that Safe Havens provided to the 15 Family Justice Centers across the United States.
