Contra Costa Alliance to End Abuse
Collective Impact Fund
The Contra Costa County Employment and Human Services Department’s (EHSD) Alliance to End Abuse (Alliance), an initiative of the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, has led the way in addressing interpersonal violence (domestic/family violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking) in the County since 2001. The Alliance is built on the foundation of public systems and private providers working together to create a safe and nurturing community.
Alliance’s approach includes:
- Strengthening Systems: Advocating with public and private entities to apply a violence prevention lens to the work they do, as well as piloting new projects.
- Building Partnerships: Facilitating open sharing of resources, ideas and people power.
- Educating Professionals and the Community: Hosting workshops and professional development trainings as well as developing tools.
The Alliance supports innovative projects and methods that will add to the collective impact of existing work to end interpersonal violence in Contra Costa County. These innovative project(s) will add value by implementing and/or piloting new or adapted approaches to meet unmet needs, support the well-being of all, and contribute to systems change and collaboration.
