Women's Center merges with Family & Youth Services

Two thriving nonprofits become even stronger as one

STOCKTON – Family and Youth Services (FAYS) and the Women’s Center of San Joaquin County have 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.

The new agency will draw on almost 80 years of combined experience providing services and shelter for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and homeless and runaway youth. Women’s Center-YFS will have a combined budget of $3.1 million, and a staff of more than 75 providing services at 8 program sites.
