Some problems are too big to face alone

In the spring of 2014, Women's Center-Youth & Family Services, in collaboration with Judith Buethe Communications launched the media campaign, "Some Problems are too big to Face Alone." The billboard and RTD bus ads are currently being featured throughout San Joaquin County. The campaign started April 14, 2014 and will run through July 20, 2014 and feature compelling images in association with our 24-hour helpline numbers. This campaign is designated to let the community know of our services for homeless youth and victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Merger featured in case study

With the help of La Piana Consulting, on July 1, 2012, Family and Youth Services (FAYS) and the Women’s Center of San Joaquin County officially merged to become a new organization, Women’s Center – Youth & Family Services.

The merger is the first of its kind in San Joaquin County in more than a decade, and this union has created a stronger organization with a larger platform, better able to serve the needs of our community. Women’s Center-YFS is San Joaquin County’s only provider of shelter and services specifically designed to meet the needs of homeless youth and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Our staff of more than 75 employees operates 8 sites, 4 of them open round-the-clock, to serve adults, children, youth and families throughout the county. Last year we served more than 21,000 individuals, including more than 750 women, children and youth who stayed in our shelters.
