From the cycle of domestic violence and the abuse of power to how to help someone who may be in a violent relationship, CORA educates volunteers and our community on many different domestic violence issues. We also offer workshops on topics such as preventing teen dating violence for youth. Trained domestic violence educators are available to provide workshops for any group in San Mateo County.
Our staff also frequently attends health fairs and community events to provide information on preventing and identifying domestic violence and abuse.

CORA has an extensive volunteer program, with volunteers who answer the hotline, provide peer counseling, and help with administrative tasks. Our volunteer program recruits, intensively trains and supports roughly 75 volunteers per year. These volunteers work for the agency’s clients for as much as 30 hours per week (in our Family Centered Mental Health program) to a couple of hours a month (for targeted administrative tasks). All volunteers attend CORA’s 40-hour Domestic Violence Advocacy Training, which provides information on the many aspects of domestic violence and how to assist people affected by it.
