About Us

Our Mission

To disrupt the cycles of gender-based violence and support survivors throughout Santa Clara County with the services they need to heal and thrive .

Our Vision

A community free from all forms of gender-based violence.

Our History

The Office of Gender-Based Violence Prevention was established in September 2019 to improve collaboration and coordination across County stakeholders in order to improve long-term outcomes for survivors of violence.  To achieve success, we work with county departments and service providers to create a shared vision that aligns key outcomes across support, prevention and response systems. The Office of Gender-Based Violence Prevention is committed to ensuring that the voices of survivors are central to establishing trauma-informed and survivor-centered policies and practices.
