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.


Service Delivery: Due to concerns with COVID-19, national and local public health guidance indicate the need for communities to make temporary adjustments. In an effort to do our part in reducing risk for our clients, staff, and the community, Center for Community Solutions has self-elected to have many of our staff work remotely. During this time, the shelters and hotline will remain open, and CCS staff will utilize virtual methods of communication to continue providing client services.

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. We will provide updates related to services and events as necessary over the coming weeks. Should you have any questions regarding service availability, please contact our hotline at 1-888-385-4657. For Legal Services updates, please visit:

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.

Raise a Cup for CCS, A Virtual Celebration!

Raise a Cup for CCS 2020

Update | November 25, 2020

Our virtual event on November 18th has ended but our campaign has not. From now through December 31, we are asking you to raise a cup for CCS and donate. Any amount is truly appreciated.


Thank you to all of our guests who joined us for virtual celebration of hope and healing and to the many others who contributed generously even if you could not be with us at our live event. CCS was able to claim the full $20,000 match funds from The Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation because of that generosity. So far, Raise a Cup for CCS has raised over $187,000!

The current pandemic has made this year one of the most challenging in our history. CCS is meeting record need for critical services with reduced resources, and we are so grateful for the support. Thank you for helping us advance our mission to end relationship and sexual violence. 

Bridging Hearts with CCS

Despite the challenges of COVID-19 CCS is still committed to providing a meaningful holiday for the clients we serve. Your generosity will bring lots of cheer to a survivor, a child, and/or an entire family this holiday season. For everyone's safety during COVID-19 we are asking for gift cards this year.
This allows for families to still receive much needed holiday support while mitigating our risk of spreading infection to our clients, staff and supporters.
For more information, to support a family or make a monetary donation to this program please visit our events calendar 

Demin Day at CCS

This year, Center for Community Solutions asked individuals to participate in our virtual Denim Day campaign, "Put a Little Hope in Your Pocket," by submitting photos of decorated denim pockets. We received over 50 denim pocket submissions showing support for survivors in a variety of creative ways!
