Our Mission

Our mission at Center for Community Solutions is to end relationship and sexual violence by being a catalyst for caring communities and social justice. Together we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.

COVID-19 UPDATES

Current Service Delivery – February 2021:  In an effort to do our part to reduce risk for our clients, staff, and the community, Center for Community Solutions continues to have many of our staff working remotely.  At the same time, CCS has remained responsive to clients, and all critical services have continued without interruption. Our shelters remain open and our hotline is staffed 24/7.  All other CCS services are offered virtually or by phone.

If you have any questions about services, please contact our hotline at 1-888-385-4657. For Legal Services updates, please click here.

CCS is committed to helping survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault lead safer and healthier lives. Given the vital safety net found in CCS’ services, we will do all we can to ensure supports continue, particularly to survivors who may already feel isolated and alone. 

Future Service Delivery:  CCS is preparing for eventual and incremental return to in-person services as guided by public health officials.

We know that as a community we are capable of great resiliency through our perseverance. If we all do our part by making these tough decisions now, we know that it will help contribute to seeing an end to this pandemic. We thank you for your understanding, and wish everyone healthy days to come.
