CCR to DV Network

“Promoting a community response to domestic violence”

Our Purpose: To bring together individuals, organizations and institutions to promote safety and mutual respect in relationships and reduce the number of domestic violence crimes in Marin County by improving and strengthening our community’s response. 

The CCR to DV Network is hosted by the Marin County District Attorney’s Office and the Center for Domestic Peace.  It is a voluntary group that is open to the public that inspires participants to learn about data, research, and best practices in addressing domestic violence, so we can better serve the people with whom we work, and so that knowledge can be transferred back to institutions for adoption.  Our premise is that coordination and integration of justice systems, human services and advocacy responses to domestic violence should reduce its occurrence.

The CCR to DV Network consists of the following entities that offer a wide variety of resources for domestic violence and sexual assault victims, their children and abusers:

Coordinated Community Response to Domestic Violence Network Recources Link


We recognize that power and control in domestic violence relationships creates unique challenges for victims with regard to safety, children, economics issues, the relationship with the batterer, external and cultural pressures, isolation from sources of support, and physical or logistical challenges.  Marginalized and vulnerable populations are at even greater risk of isolation. 

Coordination takes many forms, but at the core is our commitment to the following:

  1. We recognize a commitment to California’s domestic violence statutes and the provisions of the U.S. Department of Justice to promote practices that have been found to increase victim safety and batterer accountability;
  2. Using a shared method for case mapping and problem solving across differing criminal justice, government, and community based systems;
  3. Gaining discipline-specific training to respond and to investigate in ways that increase victim safety and abuser accountability;
  4. Gaining an understanding of each others’ roles; 
  5. Increasing the number of governmental agencies, community-based organizations, and practitioners who represent the county’s most traditionally underserved and marginalized populations;
  6. Sharing information, and analyzing processes and responses to victims, their children, and batterers to determine how they are impacted by the systemic response to their case and how they can be improved to reduce incidents of DV; and
  7. To making a plan to improve the response of Marin County’s institutions and agencies towards the goal of reducing domestic violence.
