24-Hour Crisis Line
Linea de crisis 24 horas
The mission of the YWCA Support Network is to empower our diverse community to live free from domestic violence. Our vision is to end domestic violence, one family at the time. We look forward to the day that we are able to close our doors because no one in our community will have to fear harm from her/his intimate partner.
In April 2010 the Support Network merged with and became a department of the YWCA of Silicon Valley
In 1978 the Santa Clara County Commission on the Status of Women offered a small grant to assess the need to address domestic violence in north Santa Clara County. Nine months later, in response to an overwhelming community need, project staff increased from one to five. Additional funding was obtained. Peer counseling and safe homes were developed to provide emotional support and immediate temporary housing for battered women and their children. MORE →
