The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence does not provide direct services to survivors of domestic violence but can provide referrals to local service providers, shelters, legal services and more. They provide leadership on public policy issues by promoting legislation and organizing grassroots advocacy campaigns, promote statewide communication on the issue of domestic violence and convene statewide professional trainings and conferences.
Included in this list are programs that can offer help/referrals to victims of abuse throughout the state. (If you find inaccurate contact information, please let us know at https://hotline.womenslaw.org.)
California Partnership to End Domestic Violence
Children of the Night
Children of the Night is a privately funded non-profit organization established in 1979 with the specific purpose to provide intervention in the lives of children who are sexually exploited and vulnerable to or involved in prostitution and pornography.
From our headquarters, Case Managers provide children 24-hour services, 7 days a week. We rescue youth from pimps, help with medical services, public health insurance, social security/disability benefits, maternity housing, drug program placement, domestic violence, transportation, mental health services, psychiatric evaluations or access to psychotropic medications, advocacy with the courts, social workers, probation officers, resume preparation, job placement, access to vocational or trade schools or community colleges, applications for FAFSA (federally funded financial aid) - we are ready and willing to help.
Our FREE one-on-one tutoring program through ZOOM tutors sex trafficking victims for the high school diploma – the first step in escaping the streets. A high school diploma enables them to enter the military or work in support positions in medicine or law; attend vocational or trade school and even community college.
Free Battered Women
Free Battered Women works with domestic violence survivors incarcerated in California state prisons. We seek to end the re-victimization of incarcerated survivors of domestic violence as part of the movement for racial justice and the struggle to resist all forms of intimate partner violence against women and transgender people. We achieve this through community organizing, parole advocacy, public education, media campaigns, and policy work.
