CIVIL LEGAL REPRESENTATION FOR SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, SEXUAL ASSAULT, DATING VIOLENCE, AND STALKING
ABOUT THE BRINGING JUSTICE HOME PROJECT
The Bringing Justice Home Project (BJH) of Crossroads Safehouse assists low-income domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking survivors by providing no-cost bilingual legal representation in a wide range of legal matters including, but not limited to, civil protection orders, divorce, and custody cases. BJH serves Larimer and Weld counties and provides consultative assistance to Routt, Grand, Moffat, and Jackson counties. BJH has two main goals: 1) to increase the availability of legal representation for survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault, and 2) enhance relationship violence awareness via a collaboration with 11 other partner agencies and comprehensive trainings.
If you or someone you know is a survivor of relationship violence and needs civil legal assistance, please contact BJH to discuss the application and eligibility process. Please note that this free legal service is only available to assist low-income applicants with legal matters that have arisen out of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence or stalking.
Applications are reviewed for eligibility, thus representation is not guaranteed. BJH reserves the right to refer an applicant to other services or decline services when appropriate.
The case must arise out of a domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence or stalking incident.
