Jenesse Center is the oldest domestic violence intervention program in South Central Los Angeles. Our mission is to provide victims of domestic violence with a comprehensive, centralized base of support to assist them in addressing their immediate crisis and changing the patterns of their lives.
The program is based on the philosophy and values that (a) domestic violence is a family issue (b) women and children are our primary clients (c) clients should receive culturally sensitive and culturally competent services (d) children are equal victims of domestic violence (e) clients must receive more than shelter – they must receive life skills (f) services must transform victims into survivors (g) services must be provided to populations that are generally turned away elsewhere and (h) public opinion and public policy must be impacted to combat domestic violence.
