Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services is a safe haven and a place of healing for some of the most vulnerable populations in our community. Since 1976, Women’s Center-YFS has been San Joaquin County’s primary provider of free, confidential services and shelters specifically designed to meet the needs of homeless and runaway youth and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. Our mission is to build a stronger community by fostering the strengths in individuals and by acting as a catalyst to end violence and youth homelessness. Each year we serve more than 20,000 individuals through direct services and community outreach, including more than 700 women, children and youth who stay in our four shelters annually. Through our programs and services, we are saving lives, helping victims heal, restoring hope, strengthening families, and building a safer community.
