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.

  • 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.
