Who We Are

Our Mission

CBV Heals the trauma of sexual assault and domestic violence by providing crisis intervention, safety, advocacy, and education to survivors and our community.

Our Vision

We envision a future free of interpersonal violence, where everyone in our community lives in a culture of safety and personal dignity.

We are advocates committed to fostering a community of safety, healing, and empowerment for anyone affected by interpersonal violence. 


CBV is an essential non-profit organization in an interconnected network of people and systems working to end domestic violence and sexual assault in Western Nevada County. Our clients are at the heart of our work, cared for by our compassionate staff.

We work with community partners to provide survivors with the best possible services to guide them in their recovery. We work with the County, the courts and law enforcement to advocate for positive change in the systems that perpetuate interpersonal violence. We are dedicated to teaching, mentoring, and supporting our team.

We are funded by government agencies, foundations, and private donors, who believe we are uniquely qualified to end interpersonal violence in our community.
