SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) April 08, 2019
Center for Community Solutions (CCS), a non-profit agency that offers a complete range of sexual assault, stalking, and intimate partner violence intervention and prevention services is pleased to announce a grant award of $50,000 from the S. Mark Taper Foundation.
This grant funding provides vital core operating support for comprehensive intervention and healing programs and services that help survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault across San Diego County. Services are offered at no charge and include a 24 hour crisis hotline, emergency and transitional shelters, legal and advocacy services, counseling, hospital and court accompaniment, and prevention education.
“The recent disclosures of high profile survivors and the #MeToo movement has lifted the veil of shame and blame for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. As a result, we have seen an increased demand for our services,” says Verna Griffin-Tabor, CEO for CCS. “We are grateful to the S. Mark Taper Foundation for this generous award for it allows CCS to be resilient in these times of increased calls for help from survivors,” Griffin-Tabor added.
