Thanks for visiting www.teenrelationships.org. We are here to support healthy teen relationships by helping to identify relationship abuse, teach healthy relationship tools and refer to local resources if you or someone you know is in being abused or is abusive.
Who We Are
The teen relationship website is a part of CORA (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse). CORA is a nonprofit in San Mateo County, California serving victims/survivors of domestic violence/abuse. CORA’s Community Education staff and volunteers provide education on healthy relationships and teen dating abuse through workshops, violence-prevention groups, community projects, and media campaigns.
CORA’s mission is to end domestic violence in San Mateo County through intervention and prevention. We provide comprehensive services to end the intergenerational cycle of violence. In operation for over 30 years, CORA is the only comprehensive domestic violence services agency serving San Mateo County. Annually, CORA fields over 5,000 calls from victims through our 24-Hour Crisis Line, serves 2,000 victims referred through our partnership with law enforcement, aids nearly 1,000 victims through our legal services, and provides over 3,000 counseling and support group sessions to victims and their children.
CORA started in 1977 as La Casa de San Mateo with the county’s only emergency shelter and transitional house for victims of domestic violence. The 24-Hour Crisis Hotline began one year later. In 1996, the agency added prevention and education services, and the name was changed to the Center for Domestic Violence Prevention (CDVP), to reflect this expanded focus. In 2003, CDVP merged with Sor Juana Ines, the then Latina focused domestic violence services agency to form CORA. As the only agency in San Mateo County solely dedicated to helping those affected by domestic violence, we hold a very unique role in the community.
CORA services include free and confidential emergency counseling, shelter/housing, legal services as well as outreach and education in Spanish, English, and Tagalog. For more information please visit www.corasupport.org.
