Center for Domestic Peace (C4DP) leads a comprehensive community effort to end the #1 violent crime in Marin County: domestic violence. We provide transformational services and programs that protect and enhance victim safety, hold abusers accountable, and ultimately engage our community in permanent change.
-Provide 24/7 hotline support in English and Spanish to more than 7,000 calls – including safety planning, emotional support, referrals, and information.
-Provide emergency shelter and transitional housing for over 240 survivors and their children, along with personal and economic empowerment activities, food, clothing, transportation, accompaniment, counseling, childcare, and help securing permanent housing.
-Assist over 440 survivors in navigating the legal and criminal justice systems for restraining orders, custody, divorce, and other issues.
-Help more than 180 children and non-abusing parents with case management and trauma therapy to heal the bonds of the abuse and rebuild family unity.
C4DP holds the vision of a world in which domestic violence, abuse, and intimidation is replaced with domestic peace. We believe that all women, youth, children, and men who are abused and at risk of abuse have a right to immediate and long-term safety. We strive to create greater safety, justice, and equality for all by building awareness and action toward changing the social norms that promote or enforce violence against women. We seek to make domestic violence a major community concern among all residents and social institutions (schools, hospitals, police departments, etc.). We believe that change results from the action-oriented participation of large numbers of people, organizations, and institutions, inclusive of survivors. We see intergenerational leadership as essential in our multigenerational task of ending domestic violence and violence against women and girls.
