Summer Issue
Crisis Center Newsletter
We are thrilled to have celebrated our 60th anniversary, and it wouldn't have been possible without the support of our current and former volunteers, staff, donors, and community partners. Together, we have made a significant impact on our community, creating lasting memories and leaving a legacy of positive change. As we reflect on the past 60 years, we are filled with gratitude and inspired to continue our mission of making a difference in the lives of those we serve.
A message from the Executive Director
CA vs. Hate Launch
End Hate. Promote Love. Spread Kindness.

Californians who experience a hate crime or hate incident can now anonymously report it to the state's Civil Rights Department through a new hotline. Established to report non-emergencies, the CA vs. Hate hotline and the online portal can be used by anyone who has personally experienced or witnessed a hate crime or incident.
The hotline, which launched May 4, is available Monday-Friday from 9 am to 6 pm at 833-866-4283 or 833-8-NO-HATE. Outside of the available hours, individuals can call 211 or leave a voicemail to report an incident.

Leftovers Thrift Shop
Leftovers was created in 1976 by three community minded women who were seeking a way to generate funds for the Contra Costa Crisis Center. The result was ‘Leftovers’, a thrift shop located in a former bunkhouse in Moraga. Following several moves Leftovers was re-located to its present address – 2281 Olympic Blvd, Walnut Creek.
Leftovers is a non-profit thrift shop, with no paid staff. All earnings go to organizations serving people in need, mainly the Contra Costa Crisis Center. They also support Meals on Wheels, Contra Costa Food Bank, Bay Area Crisis Nursery, the Rossmoor Fund and the Rossmoor Scholarship Fund.
