Center For A Non Violent Community (CNVC) started in the early 1970’s as The Women’s Crisis Center. Over the years, the name has been changed, first to the Mountain Women’s Resource Center and then to CNVC. The agency has grown through federal, state and local funding and now includes emergency shelter, emergency food and clothing, transitional housing, peer and professional counseling, support groups, assistance with restraining orders, court accompaniment and advocacy support as clients heal and rebuild their lives. There is also a comprehensive prevention program providing safe touch instruction for preschoolers, anti-bullying programs for elementary and high school classes, teen dating violence education, a strengths based leadership program for high school students, as well as community rape prevention education and sexual harassment information.
CNVC is the only agency in Tuolumne county providing immediate response and ongoing support for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. We work closely with our community partners and are humbly grateful for the generosity of our supporters that allows us to continue to serve those in need.
