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.

Who is C4DP? Center for Domestic Peace 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 more than 4,500 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 181,000 women and children affected by domestic violence, as well as more than 29,000 men who have been violent.
