Who We Are


Victims of domestic violence often feel trapped, lacking the financial resources and self-esteem to free themselves and their children. Brooks Harrington, an experienced attorney and ordained Methodist minister, established the Methodist Justice Ministry (MJM) in 2006 to provide light and hope to victims of traumatic domestic violence and neglect. By providing free legal representation and ongoing support, MJM helps families transition into safe and stable lives.
