SUPERVISOR RIDLEY-THOMAS TO RECOGNIZE THE JENESSE CENTER

FOR EFFORTS IN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PREVENTION

Chaired by Academy-Award winning actress Halle Berry, the organization is celebrating 30 years of service

 

LOS ANGELES – Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas today recognized the Jenesse Center for 30 years of providing culturally sensitive programs and direct services to families affected by domestic violence.

The Supervisor acknowledged the presence of Jenesse Executive Director Karen Earl; Vice President of Jenesse Board of Directors, Bobbie Anderson; and Golf Chair, Dr. Othella Owens.

From April 17-19, the Jenesse Center will host its annual Silver Rose Weekend, "In a Perfect World", to acknowledge and honor individuals whose dedication to stop domestic violence has greatly contributed to the cause of providing a safer world for all.

 

An issue close to their hearts, Supervisor Ridley-Thomas and wife Avis have passionately worked over two decades to end domestic violence and ensure that every person in need has access to shelter. 

 

“The Silver Rose Weekend serves as an opportunity to garner more support to eliminate our communities of domestic violence and provide peace for generations to come, “Supervisor Ridley-Thomas said.

 

 

 

 

 “Through a collection of programs and other services, Jenesse works to change patterns of abuse and provide better outlooks for women and children in L.A. County.”

Founded in 1980, the Jenesse Center Inc. provides a comprehensive, centralized base of support and services that ensures a transition from immediate crisis to stability and self-sufficiency.  The agency houses women and children from 30 days up to two years through its 156-bed emergency and transitional shelters.

The Jenesse Center also provides a variety of support services to over 2,000 families annually including mental health counseling, independent life skills classes, computer training, job referrals, after school programs for children, field trips, tutoring and legal aid offering assistance with obtaining restraining orders for domestic violence victims.

“I am pleased to recognize you for your diligent work to not only help women and children escape from violent situations, but to find pathways that allow them to be emotionally and physically healthy,” the Supervisor said.
