How We Help

Advocates at Valley Crisis Center are dedicated to providing service to people in Merced County who are affected by intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. By dedicating ourselves to these services, we have several different options aimed at providing help to those harmed through one on one counselingsupport groupsrestraining order support and emergency safe house services. We provide all these services in English, Spanish, Hmong, and Arabic. We will accommodate any other language upon request.

If you are interested in the services we provide, please call our 24-Hour Crisis Hotline or our business line to speak to an advocate. You can also stop by one of our offices in Merced or Los Banos, or pop into the CARE office at UC Merced to speak to an advocate in person. You can also email us at
