Hope, Healing and Prevention
Founded in 1969, Center for Community Solutions (CCS) helps more than 10,000 adults and children each year to heal and prevent relationship and sexual violence. CCS operates the only rape crisis center in the city of San Diego along with a countywide 24-hour bilingual crisis helpline. The nonprofit agency also provides emergency domestic violence shelters, hospital and court accompaniment, as well as legal and counseling services for those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. CCS also works with local community groups and schools to provide innovative prevention programs to promote healthy relationships and peaceful communities.
Our vision is for all people to live full, free, expressive and empowered lives in a safe, vibrant, healthy and peaceful community.
It is the mission of the Center for Community Solutions to end relationship and sexual violence by being a catalyst for caring communities and social justice.
