O.C.C.  Justice and Mercy “Survey Says”

Gratitude shows itself in the act of sharing. Because of funds from Justice and Mercy, and a commitment from the Endowment Board, we have been able to send checks to nine different agencies - ranging from $400-$1,000. Thanks to all of you who voted in our first ever "Survey Says...", and helped us determine where to distribute our funds.

In the late 1970s, STAND! Against Domestic Violence and the Family Stress Center were independently founded, with similar commitments to the people of Contra Costa County.  Over the years, each agency grew and evolved, building services to help stop domestic violence and child abuse. Both agencies sought to approach the problem of family violence as effectively and comprehensively as possible. These two distinct agencies have now combined efforts, expertise, and skills toward one common purpose: addressing and decreasing violence in the home.
