About

 

Mountain Crisis Services of Mariposa County seeks to prevent domestic and sexual violence by advocating for positive changes in the societal systems that may lead to oppression, fostering a better understanding of domestic and sexual violence through community education, and providing culturally relevant direct services that empower victims of abuse and their children.

Since 1991, Mountain Crisis Services has been the community’s response to violence and abuse, serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other serious crimes, while also working to prevent violence and abuse through prevention education, intervention training and public awareness. As a member of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, the local shelter is active in the oldest and most respected coalition in the country. Statewide, the Shelter’s services are recognized for innovative program excellence.

As the only domestic violence emergency shelter and sexual assault agency in Mariposa County, the agency’s comprehensive programming serves to address many client needs under one roof. Mountain Crisis’ programs, along with those of the many community partners we collaborate with, offer practical solutions and helpful opportunities to the families we serve. Our services are free to all victims in Mariposa County and surrounding communities regardless of gender, race, age, sexual orientation, income level or disability.
