"You blessed me! How can I say enough - I've never felt so loved and smiled for the first time. You are a team for all of us. We can't do a lot but say thank you, thank you. You are all my family!" Bosom Buddies Client

Expanded Horizons

The WCJ has formed a unique partnership and referral initiative with the Literacy Alliance of Northeast Florida
to improve the lives of women by improving their reading, comprehension and math skills. This program also helps with gaining a GED.


WCJ’s Prevention Department developed Setting the Bar, LEAD, and GAINS as innovative and exciting initiatives to educate and empower participants. The goals are to enhance protective environments and create opportunities to reduce sexual violence in our community.
