2018 YWCA Monterey County Domestic Violence Awareness Luncheon
This year's luncheon features Jenna McKaye, advocate and survivor of sex trafficking. She works with Law Enforcement assisting victims and helping them back into society after trauma. She gives lectures and presentations educating communities about human trafficking. Jenna's story is soon to be published and she is presently filming a documentary sharing her own personal experiences. She currently runs her own foundation to help other victims of trafficking, by virtue of her personal testimony, professional connections, and personal experience, she is most effective in meeting the immediate psychosocial needs of those recently rescued and on the path of recovery.
The YWCA Monterey County is celebrating 45 years providing domestic violence services for families throughout our communities. We are the sole provider of holistic, wraparound domestic violence and human trafficking services including two confidential safe houses, 24-hour crisis line, counseling, legal advocacy services, court accompaniment, youth education and advocacy, and state certified 40-hour domestic violence advocate training.
This year we are piloting a new program that co-locates a Domestic Violence Response Team Advocate onsite at Monterey Police Department to respond to domestic violence and human trafficking calls on the Monterey Peninsula.
Attending this luncheon is one of the best ways to support domestic violence awareness efforts in our community!
