Who We Are:
The Family and Children’s Trust Fund (FACT) was created by the General Assembly in 1986 as a public-private partnership to raise funds for the prevention and treatment of family violence. This includes child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. FACT is governed by a Board of Trustees, appointed by the Governor, to raise and distribute funds for family violence prevention and treatment efforts, as well as promote public awareness of family violence issues across the Commonwealth.
