Who We Are
CORA is the only agency in San Mateo County with the sole purpose of serving victims/survivors of domestic violence/abuse. We are a multicultural agency committed to serving victims/survivors, regardless of age, ethnicity/race, financial status, language, sexual orientation, immigration status, class, religion, gender, mental or physical ability.
We provide free and confidential emergency, intervention and prevention services, including the county’s only emergency shelter and transitional housing for victims/survivors and services in Spanish and English.
CORA provides safety, support and healing for individuals who experience abuse in an intimate relationship, and educates the community to break the cycle of domestic violence.
We envision a society where intimate partners treat one another with respect, where domestic violence and other forms of relationship abuse are not tolerated, and where services are accessible to all who need them.
We are committed to serving the unique needs of each individual, family and community.
Mutual Respect and Integrity
We believe mutual respect, compassion and integrity are the basis for healthy relationships.
Social Change to End Oppression
We acknowledge current and historical inequities and work towards ending oppression.
Honoring Culture and Inclusiveness
We are aware of, and responsive to individual and collective cultural identity.
