domestic violence

If you feel threatened or in danger you should call 911 immediately.


St. Mark's has worked alot with STAND in the past.  There are other organizations nearby that are so secret we have a hard time donating to them. STAND can help with many things: keeping you (and your children) safe, making a plan, directing you to the various government protection agencies, food, clothing lodging, support, therapy, and education. If they don't directly provide these services, they can connect you to those who can.  Link to STAND

Crisis Hotline:  STAND! For Families Free of Violence is ready to help right now. The 24-hour Crisis Line provides crisis intervention and peer support by telephone 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our toll-free telephone number is 1.888.215.5555.

If you are hurting someone you love, call 925.676.2968

If you are calling from outside Contra Costa County, please call the national domestic violence hotline at 1.800.799.7233 or if you are disabled 1.800.787.3224 (TTY).
