It Takes Courage

I didn’t recognize all the signs. They started so small and built up slowly over time. It wasn’t all bad. A lot of it was really wonderful. The violent episodes were sometimes years apart. That is what made it so hard, so confusing.

Get Involved


Your voice has power and can have an amazing impact in your community. There are many ways you can get involved and make a difference in the lives of women, children, and families on a local level and nationally.



We believe in a community where all women and children have a safe place to live. A place where women have the opportunity to earn a livable wage and families can live free from violence, in peace, and with dignity.

YWCA Spokane contributes to this critical movement by hosting a public event every April that engages in open and honest dialogue to confront stereotypes and bias as a community. Each courageous conversation provides an opportunity to broaden perspectives, learn new tools, and connect with a diverse community of citizens passionate about eliminating racism in our community.
