is dedicated to facilitating a healthy recovery process for all domestic violence and sexual assault survivors and to reducing the occurrences of these crimes through community awareness and prevention projects.
The mission of Siskiyou Domestic Violence & Crisis Center is to assist victims in becoming survivors by providing advocacy and support services while empowering them during this transitional period. It is also the goal of SDV&CC to influence public policy and attitudes towards these crimes.
was originally started with funding from the Yreka Business and Professional Women's Organization. The original funding provided a 24-hour, 7 day-a-week hotline. Volunteers responded to calls. Victims and their children were house in local motel rooms or driven to a shelter in Redding. Eventually, a residence was rented and used as a local shelter. In 1984, the program became incorporated as a non-profit organization. In 1992, a residence was purchased to use as a confidential shelter. To date, the shelter remains the only one of its kind in Siskiyou County. Many survivors and their children ahve received assistance through the domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse and homeless services provided by the program.
was added to the name in 1996 to reflect the additional services provided. Speakers are available to schools, law enforcement agencies, community organizations, and groups throughout the county to talk about the effects of domestic violence and sexual assault and to discuss possible solutions and means of prevention.
