2016 Annual Report – YWCA Spokane

YWCA Spokane is proud to provide you with our 2016 annual report.

A message from our CEO, Regina Malveaux, and 2016 Board Chair, Susan Ashe.

2016 was another amazing year of impact at YWCA Spokane. In our Alternatives to Domestic Violence Program we faced a significant loss of federal funding for our shelter and worried that we would be forced to cut critical services. However, through creative problem solving with the City of Spokane and many generous individual and corporate donors we were able to continue providing 24 hour confidential shelter for those families endangered by domestic violence. Through expanded partnerships with local law enforcement, Sacred Heart Medical Center and the Spokane Housing Authority we also increased our capacity to provide for those who come through our doors in need of safety, legal and housing stability.

In our Women’s Opportunity Center we worked to help empower 171 women looking to re-enter the workforce and launched 43 women into new jobs, creating a new employment pathways for those seeking to provide economic stability for their families.

Across our Children’s Services programs our Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP), experience significant growth expanding to five sites serving nearly 300 pre-school aged children across the county. An additional 400 children were able to heal and thrive after experiencing family violence by helping them process and understand that this violence is not their fault and is neither normal or accepted.

And of course, we continued our ongoing quality programs throughout every department at the YWCA through the committed and compassion service of the 75 members of our staff who come to work every day with the goal of helping women, children and families find hope, healing and a pathway forward.

Thank you so very much for your support. You make this all possible.
