2017 ACFJC Gala Jan 12, 2017

Join us for the 10th Annual 'One' Gala to raise funds for the Alameda County Family Justice Center, a center that does tremendous work helping victims and their family rebuild their lives.

The Gala directly supports four programs at the ACFJC:

  • Camp Hope: a week-long sleep-away experience to provide nurturing and guidance to children impacted by violence. Professional staff and youth leaders assist in the healing process and our campers build relationships with other children in similar circumstances.
  • Natalie's Nook: Children traumatized by violence often lag behind in educational progress. In addition to the counseling we provide these young victims, Natalie’s Nook offers early childhood programs in reading and others subjects to ensure these young people have the opportunity to succeed.
  • STEP-UP (The Survivor Training Empowerment Program – Utilizing your Potential): this initiative allows victims of domestic violence and sexual exploitation to heal and become confident and productive members of the community. This award-winning program has received wide recognition for its positive outcomes.
  • The Legal Clinic: this program offers the legal support and knowledge for victims of domestic violence to face their abusers alone in court to secure a divorce or fight for child custody. In partnership with USF Law School and run by a Family Law Attorney, abused women obtain the professional help they need to secure a positive outcome.

WHEN: Saturday, January 28, 2017

TIME: 6pm Reception. 7:30pm Dinner, Program and Live Auction

Tickets can be purchased here. To find out more about the essential work done by the Alameda County Family Justice Center, please visit their website.

DV Awareness Month 2014 Sep 30, 2014

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

DA O'Malley is a committed partner of the California Victims' Compensation Program (CalVCP) and leader in victims' rights advocacy. A new campaign by the CalVCP now permeates four of the top ten most violent cities in California: Oakland, Richmond, Antioch, and San Francisco. In addition to their crime rates, these cities were chosen because of the existing gap between the high number of reported violent crimes and the low number of CalVCP applications submitted for assistance. The images and information are displayed on the CalVCP website and on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) and Municipal Transportation Agency (MUNI).
