County of Alameda

Alameda County, California, was established in 1853. The County was created from the territory of two counties created in 1850: Contra Costa and Santa Clara. It was given the local name for the region, Alameda, which translated loosely as "a grove of poplars." The County enjoys a varied geography ranging from urban marinas to rolling open spaces to hillside lakes and streams. Alameda is the seventh most populous county in California, and has 14 incorporated cities and several unincorporated communities. The total population is estimated to be 1,510,271 as of April 2010, a 4.6% increase from April 2000. During the same time period, California's population rose 10%. Oakland is the seat of County government and the largest city.

Alameda County is characterized by rich diversity and culture. Population growth has occurred with the natural net increase of births over deaths, but also from substantial immigration, and Alameda County is now one of the most ethnically diverse regions in the Bay Area and the nation. The 2010 Census shows that there is no majority racial or ethnic group in Alameda County. Compared to the 2000 Census, the Black / African American population decreased countywide by 11%, the Asian population increased by 31%, and the Hispanic population increased by 23%. According to the California Department of Education, 53 languages were spoken by English language learners in the K-12 public school systems in Alameda County in 2008-09.

Introduction ALAMEDA COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE ALAMEDA COUNTY FAMILY JUSTICE CENTER DEPARTMENT Founded in 2005, the ACFJC collaborates with over 45 law enforcement, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations to ensure safety and healing for victims of interpersonal violence through comprehensive, coordinated, culturally sensitive and accessible services, including: victim and witness assistance; legal advocacy; domestic violence and sexual assault counseling; restraining order assistance; safety planning; children's counseling; parenting support; shelter/housing assistance; benefits assistance and enrollment; Safe at Home application assistance; self-sufficiency services, professional development, resume writing and interviewing skills; criminal justice information and assistance; and clinical mental health services through the Trauma Recovery Center. The California Victim Compensation Board administers the Trauma Recovery Center program under the authority of Government Code section 13963.1. To be designated a "Trauma Recovery Center" applicants must be able to provide all the following resources, treatments, and recovery services to crime victims: • Mental health treatment services • Assertive community-based outreach and clinical case management • Coordination of care among medical and mental health care providers, law enforcement agencies, victim service providers and other social service agencies • Services to family members and loved ones of homicide victims • A multidisciplinary staff of clinicians that includes licensed psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers. These clinicians can be either salaried or contract positions. In 2016, The Alameda County Family Justice Center became the first non-hospital in California to receive the Trauma Recovery Center ("TRC") designation. That designation was renewed in 2018. To meet the TRC's on-site mental health treatment services requirement, the District Attorney has partnered with community-based non-profits Jewish Family and Community Services ("JFCS") to implement a mental health treatment program at the Family Justice Center.
