About Us

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, and ultimately engage our community in permanent change.

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.

To that end, C4DP operates with three interlocking strategies: 1) Safety and Empowerment, 2) Coordinated Community Response, and 3) Social Transformation.

1. Each year, our core services promote the safety and empowerment of thousands of individuals impacted by domestic violence through: an emergency shelter, 24/7 hotlines, long-term transitional housing, support groups, legal advocacy and services, and a ManKind and WomanKind program for men and women who seek to end the violence in their relationships.

2. We engage, train, and coordinate professionals from various sectors to promote a coordinated community response to domestic violence within multiple systems – including legal services, law enforcement, criminal justice, health and mental health, and education.

3. We take a leadership role in promoting social transformation through technical assistance, education, prevention (including teens and adults), and policy initiatives.

Since our founding in 1977, we have responded to the needs of more than 210,000 individuals affected by domestic violence, as well as more than 30,000 men who have been violent.
