In California, it is a crime for any person to beat, sexually assault, or otherwise harm another person.
When calling law enforcement, tell the dispatcher of:
  • Any serious injuries you have suffered
  • Whether the abuser is still there or has threatened to return soon
  • If there is a weapon involved
  • Whether the batterer is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • And if there is a temporary restraining order against the batterer

Mandated Reporting

The Women’s Center–YFS is a confidential place where families who are experiencing domestic violence and/or sexual assault can seek services.

Because we are state funded we are also mandated reporters. If at any time you tell us the following information we will make a report to the appropriate authorities:

  • Child Abuse
  • Elder Abuse
  • Dependent Adult Abuse
  • Suicide
  • Homicide

If you want to report any of the above mentioned abuse, please contact your local Law Enforcement or Human Service Agency.

WCYFS cares deeply about the health of its community, supporters, clients and team. Due to rising concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and recommendations from government agencies, we have made changes to ensure the safety of everyone.
