Drug Take Back Day Oct 23, 2017

On Saturday, October 28, the Alameda County DA’s Office will be participating in the National Drug Take Back Day, in partnership with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration. This will be the last Drug Take Back Day for 2017.

We encourage you to bring any unused, unwanted and/or expired prescription or over the counter medication for free, confidential and safe disposal.

It is a great opportunity to rid your home of potentially-dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter drugs, thereby helping to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft. We can also accept unused pet medication.

Drop off your unused medication to one of our four safe disposal sites between 10am and 2pm:

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.

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