The San Joaquin County Human Trafficking Task Force, a local collaboration between more than three dozen county agencies, will host a Human Trafficking Community Summit on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. The Community Summit is free to the public and will be held in the Burwood Auditorium inside the Wentworth Center at the San Joaquin County Office of Education in Stockton, California.

The Community Summit is an opportunity to highlight accomplishments achieved by the Task Force over the past year and share the critical goals for the upcoming year. Additionally, participants will hear from some of our county’s top agencies during a panel discussion and learn, first hand, how human trafficking impacted one local family.  

Joelle Gomez, Task Force Chair, encourages the community to participate in this critical event. “Human trafficking is a massive, complex and pervasive industry; one that is impossible for a single institution to take on alone. Eradicating this trade requires a comprehensive set of initiatives that come from many organizations working in a variety of sectors, each through their own and shared frameworks and services,” states Gomez. The Task Force seeks to utilize the Community Summit as a platform to continue building on an infrastructure that deters local human trafficking and supports those who have been victimized.

Any local business or community member interested in learning more about the Task Force or attending the Human Trafficking Community Summit can email Joelle Gomez, Task Force Chair, at .

About The San Joaquin County Human Trafficking Task Force: The Task Force was established in 2014 between more than three dozen local organizations and agencies, including Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services, Stockton Police Department, San Joaquin District Attorney’s Office, Probation, Victim Witness, Human Services Agency/Children’s Services and San Joaquin Regional Transit District. It is only through a continued and collective effort, action and commitment that we can achieve our goal of creating a community, and world, where we can all live free of human trafficking.   

Adopt-a-Family 2016

Dear Friends,

For many families, the holiday season is a magical time of the year. Hearts and homes begin to warm and loved ones experience the joys and wonders of the season; yet for those without homes and families who have fled from fear or violence, this time of year can be especially difficult. 

Women's Center-Youth & Family Services is sponsoring the 2016 Holiday Adopt-A-Family program. Through the generosity of our community, holiday gifts become a reality for the women, children and families we serve in our shelters and programs. We invite you to assist us in this endeavor by adopting a youth or family. 


If you would like to participate by adopting a family, please contact our main office at: (209) 941-2611

Happy Holidays!
