Jenesse Center and SLAM

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. 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.

The South Los Angeles Movement (SLAM) Prevention Coalition comprises 8 community-based organizations (Avalon Carver Community Center, Community Coalition, People Coordinated Services, Shields for Families, South Central Prevention Coalition, Volunteers of America, Watts Healthcare, and Weber Community Center) within South LA. The mission of this coalition is to improve the overall health and conditions for the community through substance use prevention particularly by centering the narrative and voices of youth.
