Children's Justice Center

Utah County Children's Justice Center

The Utah County Children's Justice Center (CJC) is a homelike facility which serves children and families who are experiencing the crisis and chaos that comes with the disclosure of significant physical or sexual abuse of a child.

The focus and function of the Children's Justice Center is to reduce the trauma of the child abuse investigation and help the child feel safe to reveal the truth.

The CJC is a working public/private partnership for our children. The CJC receives partial operational funding through appropriation by the Utah State Legislature. Funding for mental health treatment is also available through private donations and special grants of the CDBG monies from the cities of Orem and Provo.

The CJC is also benefits from an annual fundraiser, The Dollhouse Festival. Please click here to learn more about the Dollhouse Festival and how you can help stop child abuse in Utah County.
