What We Do…

Community Violence Solutions (CVS) is dedicated to working in partnership with the community to end sexual assault and family violence through prevention, crisis services, and treatment. Formerly called Rape Crisis Center, CVS was founded by the Greater Richmond Interfaith Program in 1974 and incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 1977. Since then, CVS has expanded its services to all of Contra Costa and Marin Counties.

Community Violence Solutions is a non-profit agency that relies on your financial donations and that depends on the efforts of dozens of community volunteers.
