Betty Griffin Center is the only center in St. Johns County that has provided free services to all victims of domestic and sexual abuse since 1990. Last year, Betty Griffin Center received more than 1,600 calls to the crisis hotline. The primary purpose of the agency is to provide holistic services that directly relate to the victims’ experience of abuse which will increase safety and security for both the victim and the family.
As a full service domestic and sexual abuse center, Betty Griffin Center provides information and referral, a 24-hour crisis hotline, court advocacy, civil legal representation, individual and group counseling and other support services to shelter residents and non-residents. Betty Griffin Center also provides a Sexual Assault Recovery Program for advocacy, service management, legal representation, rape crisis unit forensic exams, advocacy coordination and crisis counseling services. In addition, Betty Griffin Center community educators provide primary prevention education on domestic abuse and sexual assault in the community and St. Johns County School District K-12 and local colleges.
