Collin County Council of Family Violence

The Collin County Council on Family Violence strengthens collaborative, professional partnerships and serves as a catalyst for a sustained movement against family violence in Collin County. We are proud of the work our member organizations do to help victims of family violence in Collin County.

What started as a Junior League of Collin County, JLCC, initiative and workshop in November 1999 flourished into an active Council of more than sixty community partners. These member-partners represent all areas of the community, including local and state government, law enforcement, education, faith and social services, health care, legal, and workplace organizations. JLCC and Council members have partnered, pooling resources, building formidable intellectual capital, and pushing forward to unearth best practices in a gallant effort to improve life in Collin County.

The Facing Family Violence Conference, held annually since 2002: This two-day event features credentialed professionals and keynote speakers focusing on topics such as child abuse, elder abuse, partner abuse and sexual assault. The conference aims to equip first responders with the latest research, best practices, and tools they need to serve our population well. The Council has been commended for its multidisciplinary approach to professional education.
