California Health Care Facility (CHCF) recently donated funds to support victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. 

A San Joaquin County organization is working to help victims, survivors, and at-risk youth. They are called PREVAIL, an acronym for Pioneering Restoration and Elevating Voices of Advocacy, Idealism, and Leadership.

They provide services for the homeless, runaway youth, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. With California among the largest sites for human trafficking in the United States, PREVAIL seeks to help victims heal, restore hope, and strengthen families for a safer community.

“Our aim is to create opportunities for hope, healing, and growth by breaking intergenerational cycles of violence and abuse,” said Elizabeth Sanchez, Director of Community Engagement.

“We are thankful for this organization and its efforts to help keep our community safe from violence and victimization,” said CHCF Warden Gena Jones.
