BENEFITING: CONTRA COSTA FAMILY JUSTICE ALLIANCE

EVENT: The NO MORE Challenge

EVENT DATE: Feb 04, 2016

THE STORY:

The NO MORE campaign will benefit the Family Justice Alliance and two vital partners – STAND! for Families Free of Violence and Community Violence Solutions.

The Family Justice Alliance has two Centers (in Richmond and Concord) serving Contra Costa County that bring together county and nonprofit partners to work together to support survivors and victims in their time of need. Since 2011, 1662 families were assisted in Contra Costa County. Services include advocacy, assistance with emergency shelter, peer counseling, emotional support, law enforcement assistance, safety planning, legal services, and access to mental health services.

In addition to immediate assistance, the Family Justice Alliance understands that survivors of interpersonal violence may have a long road ahead towards freedom and independence.  Donations will several programs for survivors, advocates, and community members such as cooking class, yoga, trainings on interpersonal violence.

STAND! For Families Free of Violence serves over 10,000 women, children and men every year and is the leading provider of family violence services in Contra Costa County. Through a comprehensive range of services, STAND! builds safe families and strong communities while working towards a violence-free future. Our services include emergency and transitional housing, a multilingual, toll-free, 24-hour Crisis Line, safety planning, child assessment and treatment services, individual and group counselling, teen dating violence prevention and Bay Point First 5 Center. 

A donation to STAND! helps us: 1) SAVE LIVES with our intervention services; 2) REBUILD FAMILIES by supporting caregivers; and 3) CHANGE THE FUTURE through preventative community education. With your help, we can continue to provide programs that heal scars, reestablish trust and provide fresh starts. Your gift could fund transportation for an abused woman to a safe place, provide therapy for a child recovering from violence or support new parents who are ending the cycle of violence in their families.

Community Violence Solutions (CVS) is one of the oldest Rape Crisis Centers in California, and has been working to combat and respond to sexual assault, sexual abuse, and sexual exploitation since 1974. CVS is the sole provider of 24-hour rape crisis hotline and support services to sexual assault survivors in Contra Costa and Marin counties, and the nationally accredited multidisciplinary Child Advocacy Center in Contra Costa. Additionally, CVS provides 24-hour crisis response and support services to victims of all forms of human trafficking; drop-in centers for sexually exploited youth in San Pablo and Antioch; home visiting and case management for families at risk of involvement with the child welfare system, and extensive prevention and education services in public schools, on college campuses, and in the community.
