The Alameda Police Department is often the first point of contact for a variety of concerns and in that role, we strive to help people connect to the appropriate community resources. Below are some common concerns we encounter and resources to consider. There are many resources available in the city and county of Alameda; hopefully those included on this site will offer you a good starting point.

In June 2014, a program was launched through HopeLine called “Because Voices Have Power,” a national campaign designed to increase awareness of domestic violence and provide a platform for the public to send messages of hope to victims and survivors. For each message of hope shared, Verizon has committed to donating $3 to local and national domestic violence prevention organizations across the country.
They have already collected over 10 million phones nationwide, while donating over $18 million dollars to domestic violence organizations. A great explanation of the program can be found here: http://www.verizonwireless.com/aboutus/hopeline/index.html
