link to interview with Suzanne Lester whose life was changed for the better thanks to this amazing organization
If you know anyone who is experiencing domestic violation problems or needs help dealing with family court issues there is a fantastic non profit that can help. The Coalition for Family Justice was founded by Monica Getz of Irvington in 1988. They have helped many people over the years. I recently interviewed Suzanne Lester, a resident of our town, on my WVOX radio program (see link below) who discusses how the Coalition saved her during a stressful time in her life. I have referred many people to this non profit over the years - residents who were severely depressed feeling that they had nothing to live for. After joining this amazing organization their lives changed for the better -- they received support, great advice and help and were able to have happy lives, thanks to the Coalitions help. Suzanne Lester discusses her life changing experiences on the radio. Also -please see link to the Coalition for Family Justice website.
To identify problems and advocate for systemic changes in the divorce and family court systems in order to make them fair, user friendly, accountable, and affordable;

The Coalition for Family Justice is a grassroots, gender neutral, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, founded in 1988 and headquartered in Irvington, New York.
