Stand Strong Mission Statement:

To support survivors and end domestic violence in San Luis Obispo County.

The Stand Strong Vision:

A society where intimate partners and family members treat each other with dignity, respect, and compassion; where oppression is replaced with equality; where the expression of conflict and anger is non-violent; where children grow up with their esteem intact and are nurtured in such a manner they recognize the value of speaking the truth, welcoming diversity and practicing cooperation. Our vision is a society free from intimate and political wars.


Stand Strong Women’s Shelter Program of San Luis Obispo County is committed to providing comprehensive services for victims of intimate partner violence and child abuse in our community.
