Palomar provides protection, hope, and healing.

We partner with other community agencies to provide wraparound services to victims of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, stalking, elder abuse, and human trafficking. We are a Family Justice Center, which means that we collaborate with our partner organizations, many of whom have offices in our building, to fulfill our mission.
