Pace Women's Justice Center

Pace Women’s Justice Center (PWJC) provides free legal services to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse. A nonprofit legal center serving Westchester and Putnam Counties, PWJC helps individuals navigate the legal system and obtain services related to divorce, custody, support, financial exploitation, public benefits and housing. Through outreach events and training programs we raise awareness, educate the community, and train judges, police officers, attorneys, and social service providers on best practices when working with victims of abuse. Safe families make stronger communities.
