A little about Empowered Yolo:
Founded in 1977 as the Yolo County Sexual Assault Center, Empower Yolo was started by five women from Davis, CA who identified a need and began providing crisis intervention services out of an apartment. Soon thereafter, domestic violence services were added and the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center became Yolo County’s sole provider of specialized services to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
In 1980, the agency received a federal grant to establish its first shelter and that fall, Harper House, the county’s first shelter for battered women and children, was opened. In November of 1999, Empower Yolo’s current confidential shelter facility – the 25-bed Wallace and Vanucci shelter, opened to residents in place of Harper House.
In January 2014, in an effort to more effectively encompass our vast programs and services, as well as highlight the connection between client, organization and community, the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center became Empower Yolo, Providing Hope. Ending Violence. Today, Empower Yolo is the county’s largest provider of services to women and children and only residential and counseling agency whose primary purpose is to provide specialized services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, dating violence, stalking, human trafficking and other forms of abuse.
