The Council is facilitated by the Junior League of Collin County (JLCC) and is comprised of mental health, law enforcement, human resources and faith professionals. The CCCFV provides unprecedented training, community networking, and unique hands-on experience working directly with community partners, elected officials, and leaders of community organizations to address the problem of family violence in Collin County.
