Dream Program

JFCS’ Dream Program offers critically needed help to women and their children who have experienced domestic abuse and need to recover and learn new skills to move toward self-sufficiency. The program provides to families—of all faiths and backgrounds—a trauma-informed model of care that is critical to meet the needs of mothers and their children recovering from domestic abuse.


The Dream Program utilizes a case management model of support with comprehensive wrap around services to help women develop skills and obtain resources to move through crisis into self-sufficiency.  On-going support groups, domestic violence education, women’s empowerment speaker series, and other social outings help provide women with a larger support community.

Depending upon client need and the case plan, participants may be eligible for other JFCS services, including clinical support, short term financial assistance, and parent education and support.  JFCS also partners with community agencies to assist clients in receiving legal assistance, job training, and vocational services as available.

For more information on the Dream Program, please call Dr. Yuliana Gelb, Director of Family Supportive Services & Dream Program, at 415-449-1243.


We want to create a culture in which healthy relationships are accessible to all people. Through community outreach, we aim to prevent and disrupt the cycle of violence by teaching individuals to recognize the signs of abuse and understand why it happens, and by increasing public awareness of domestic violence.
