Family Justice Center

On Saturday afternoon, Rotarians and their guests will have the opportunity to serve the Chattanooga community at the Chattanooga Hamilton Family Justice Center.

A unique consolidation of organizations and services involved in the family justice system, the Family Justice Center includes a boutique that provides gently used clothing to those who have been impacted by family violence and need help with a new wardrobe or dressing properly to obtain a new start.

Conference attendees will be asked to donate new or gently used clothing from a list that the Family Justice will identify and to bring those items to the Conference.

There are several other hands-on service activities on the Family Justice Center “wish list” that are being planned for our “Afternoon of Service
