Get a safety plan

A safety plan is a way of protecting yourself and your family from domestic violence and other forms of abuse. We recommend that you contact a Victim Advocate at one of our centers to help you put a plan together. This service is free, confidential, and is geared to help you make informed decisions about your safety.

Once you have developed your plan, memorize it and practice it. Keep this plan in a safe place away from the abuser.

Youth Programs

Serving children and youth who have been impacted by violence or are at-risk is part of our core mission at SAFE Family Justice Centers. Violence is a learned behavior and we are committed to facilitating programs that help build social emotional learning in our youth. Our programs help our children grow up healthy, learn how to deal with stress, build relationships and confidence.

Police Activities League (P.A.L)

All kids face difficult challenges at school, home and on the playing field. Our P.A.L. is dedicated to providing programs and activities which offer all kids an opportunity to participate with positive role models in a safe environment with caring adults.

The collaboration with Temecula, Murrieta, and Menifee Police Department is founded on the belief that early prevention and intervention for youth will reduce juvenile crime and violence.

SAFE Family Justice Centers accepts sign-ups year-round for the Temecula/Murrieta Police Activities League.

Call (951) 587-3900 for more information or to join Police Activities League.

Girls Circle

The Girls Circle model, a structured support group for girls and youth who identify with female development from 11-18 years, integrates relational theory, resiliency practices, and skills training in a specific format designed to increase positive connection, personal and collective strengths, and competence in girls

Boys Council

The Council is a strengths-based group approach for boys and youth ages 11-18 who identify with male development to promote their safe and healthy passage through pre-teen and adolescent years. The Council meets a core developmental need in boys for strong, positive relationships. In this structured environment, boys and young men gain the vital opportunity to address masculine definitions and behaviors and build their capacities to find their innate value and create good lives - individually and collectively!

Crime Prevention Unit (CPU)

The CPU consists of Deputy District Attorneys and SAFE Family Justice Center Nonprofit Youth Advocates working across the county to enhance public safety, help lower the recidivism rate, and prevent youth from becoming involved in the criminal justice system.

SAFE Family Justice Center (SFJC) is a non-profit community-based organization established in 1998 and specializes in providing domestic violence and at-risk youth prevention and intervention services to the community. In addition, SFJC provides services from four regional locations within the County of Riverside. The centers are in the cities of Riverside, Indio, Murrieta, and Temecula.

SFJC uses a multidisciplinary response framework that provides “one-stop shop” services to youth and adults from both government and community-based partner agencies who work under one roof to support the complex needs of at-risk youth and victims of abuse.

Services provided in the centers are trauma informed, client led, confidential, and limit the number of times that individuals must re-tell their story, ultimately creating a safe space for youth and family members to address the underlying causes of truancy and delinquent behavior.
