Did you know?

Studies show that intimate partner violence is as high or even higher in the LGBTQIA+ community and it often goes underreported. Sexual orientation and gender identity are components that may result in a young adult being homeless and there is a higher chance of them experiencing intimate partner violence and sexual assault. Accessing assistance and resources is not always easy for the LGBTQIA+ community, as some of the services available are not equipped to address the very specific needs of this community. Women’s Center-Youth and Family Services is a safe place for all, regardless of age, race, gender or sexual orientation and we would like the LGBTQIA+ community to know that our doors are always open to all.


Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services is San Joaquin County’s primary provider of free, confidential shelter and services specifically designed to meet the needs of homeless and runaway youth and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. Each year the agency serves more than 20,000 individuals through its direct services and community outreach.

Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services’ Remains Open During COVID-19 Shutdown

Services continue for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and youth homelessness.


Stockton, CA: Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services (WCYFS) remains open and continues to provide services for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and youth homelessness during the COVID-19 shutdown. Individuals and families can access services Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM, at WCYFS’ office located at 620 N. San Joaquin Street in Stockton, California, or 24 hours a day by calling its helpline at 209-465-4878.

“Experiencing a victimization can result in a variety of physical and emotional responses; depending on the circumstances, these feelings – feeling isolated, feeling alone, feeling distrustful – are already heightened and become compounded when social networks and communities are disrupted, such as the impact we are seeing from the novel COVID-19 crisis,” explains Krista M. Fiser, MA, CEO of WCYFS.

WCYFS is a victim services agency that specializes in healing families, individuals and children that have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, and the aftermath of such victimizations, including human trafficking and youth homelessness. Through crisis intervention, support services, case management, after-care services and education and outreach, WCYFS supports the most vulnerable populations to heal their trauma, empower self-sustainability including productivity and responsibility and ultimately end the generational cycle of violence.

About Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services: In 2012, Women’s Center of San Joaquin County (est. 1976) merged with Family & Youth Services (est. 1969) to create today’s Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services (WCYFS). We exist to build a stronger community by fostering the strengths in individuals and by acting as a catalyst to end violence and youth homeless. With multiple locations throughout San Joaquin County, including four homeless youth and domestic violence shelters, Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services serves nearly 20,000 individuals annually. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, WCYFS relies on donations from the local community to supplement programmatic contracts and grants in order to continue providing the highest quality of services to those in need.
