The Family Safety Center


One Place, One Hope, where Family Safety Comes First. 
A place where families come first and professionals come together.

8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, following the Tulsa County Courthouse holiday schedule. Emergency protective orders are filed between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The emergency protective order hearing takes place at the courthouse 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.

On July 21, 2004, the Department of Justice, through the President's Family Justice Center Initiative, awarded more than $20 million to 15 communities across the United States to prevent and respond to violence against women. The City of Tulsa was one of the 15 communities to receive this grant. The purpose of the grant is to provide a single location where victims and their families can quickly and confidentially seek information and resources regarding domestic violence and select services based on individual needs or circumstances. The Family Safety Center will house on-site a variety of collaborative partners in order to provide clients with easier access to services for victims of domestic violence and will be able to refer clients to many other off-site partners for additional services.

The on-site partners include: Domestic Violence Intervention Services (DVIS) Advocacy, DVIS Legal Services, RSVP Safety Shepherd Volunteers, Tulsa County District Attorney's Office, Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, Tulsa Police Department - Family Violence Unit, Tulsa Metropolitan Ministries (TMM), YWCA of Tulsa Multicultural Service Center.

To provide one location that effectively combines civil, criminal, health and social services for victims of domestic violence.

The FSC will work in a united effort to achieve the following objectives:

  • Reduce the number of domestic violence cases that go unreported in Tulsa County
  • Ensure domestic violence perpetrators are prosecuted
  • Provide help and resources to victims of domestic violence
  • Provide help and resources to children exposed to domestic violence
