Founded in 1980, Jenesse Center is a nonprofit domestic violence intervention and prevention organization with a resolute mission: to restore, and provide trauma informed, culturally responsive, holistic, comprehensive services to survivors and families impacted by domestic and sexual violence, and to advance prevention modalities to sustain healthy and safe communities free of violence.   Jenesse works locally, nationally and globally to shine a light on violence against women, girls, men and boys and advocates the basic human right for all people to have peace in their homes and relationships.  Jenesse’s culturally sensitive programs and services not only transition families from crisis to self-sufficiency, but transforms the lives of its clients and the community at large by offering education, referrals and resources that go beyond shelter.

Our Vision

Jenesse envisions a world in which every person lives in a safe environment, free from oppression and with the opportunity to thrive. Our goal is to support the path of all survivors as they work to be self-sufficient and live free from violence. Learn More

  • Women and children are our primary clients
  • Children are equal victims of domestic violence
  • Clients should receive culturally sensitive and culturally competent services
  • Shelter is only the beginning of intervention
  • Clients must receive more than shelter – they must receive life skills
  • Services must transform victims into survivors
  • Men have to be a part of the conversation
  • Services must be provided to populations that are generally turned away elsewhere
  • Public opinion and public policy must be impacted to combat domestic violence
