Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Describe the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence and its mission.
The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence is a statewide domestic violence coalition; we are the umbrella organization for California’s domestic violence direct service providers. Our vision as an agency is to see a California free from domestic violence. Our particular mission is to be a catalyst and advocate for social change, and to ensure safety and justice for victims and survivors of domestic violence and their children. Our agency was formed two years ago with the merger of two previous California DV coalitions: Statewide California Coalition for Battered Women and the California Alliance Against Domestic Violence.

Question: Describe what The Partnership staff members do.
We work on numerous fronts at the local, state and national level. Our staff supplies an array of support services to direct service providers around the state. These come in the form of technical support, staff training, referrals and resource coordination. Our policy team works very closely with the state legislature, and has a long track record of successfully passing over 100 pieces of legislation on behalf of battered women and their children.

Question: Are there regional offices within California? How is The Partnership organized?
Our agency offices are in Sacramento. But as the statewide coalition, we have over 100 member programs, and those span the entire state.
