  • Offering a program that balances prevention, intervention and support.
  • Endorsing public policy that makes violence unacceptable.
  • Conducting our own affairs in an ethical and caring way.

Since 1977, the Central Oregon Battering and Rape Alliance (COBRA) has helped thousands of families break the cycle of violence. We're a private, non-profit organization serving Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson counties.  We work closely with a network of local supporters that includes volunteers, court and law enforcement officials, medical professionals, social services agencies, schools, and corporate donors.  With their help, COBRA delivers a wide range of crisis and educational services, many available in Spanish.  COBRA is a United Way Agency member.


Each year COBRA will:

  • Receive more than 2,500 calls for assistance, most from women in crisis situations.  
  • Provide emergency shelter for as many as 350 women and their children
  • Deliver direct aid to another 800 women, men and children
  • Touch the lives of thousands more through training programs and educational presentations.  

It's an enormous task, and we're grateful to the growing number of people, organizations, and companies that have stepped in to help.  

You too can help to by being a volunteer or supporter

If you, or someone you know, is being abused, please read the advisory warning to ensure an abuser is not able to discover your contact with COBRA.
