Cathryn Curley, a pioneer in the field of working to stop domestic violence, was instrumental in the creation of the Family Justice Center. The center offers many services, all under one roof, for women who need to leave violent relationships. Some of these services include legal advice, police action, social work, housing information, childcare, and job training. After Curley died in October of 2010, many who worked with her at Safe Haven and through other services in the field of women and domestic violence said there was a big hole where Cathryn’s personality used to shine. On Jan. 27, glass artwork by Michael Tondrik was installed on the wall in the entrance to the center, which is located at 414 W. First Street (the old city gas building across from the Duluth City Hall). The center was packed with supporters and women Curley had helped throughout her lifetime.
