‘Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Center’ in Yolo County changes its name


The “Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center” in Yolo County has changed its name to “Empower Yolo,” a spokesperson reports.

“This change is intended to more effectively encompass our philosophy of service, comprehensive programs and geographical reach of services offered by our agency – with an emphasis on the less-recognized, unincorporated areas of Yolo County,” said Diana Stantz, director of community relations. “While the name of the agency has changed, our philosophy and services have not.”

Empower Yolo is a nonprofit dedicated to the intervention, prevention, and elimination of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking and child abuse in Yolo County, she added.
