Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Julian Center Inc.




The church-affiliated center takes a five-pronged approach toward reducing the incidence of domestic violence and sexual assault, supporting survivors, and helping to break the intergenerational cycle of abuse. Rising demand and reduced funding have created challenges for the organization, which is using this program-related investment – a low-interest loan over 36 months from the Community Relief Fund, which offered program-related investments to high-performance human-service organizations that were providing food, shelter, and other emergency services during the economic crisis – to maintain current service levels.
