Thank you to Washington State DSHS BFET Program for your grant to benefit YWCA Spokane’s Women’s Opportunity Center

Because of their amazing support, YWCA Spokane’s Women’s Opportunity Center will be able to provide more programs, classes, and availability for women experiencing domestic violence, homelessness, and/or unemployment. Washington State DSHS Basic Food Employment and Training Program (BFET)’s gift makes a major impact in the lives of those we serve, and we are so grateful for their commitment to developing community in Spokane. We understand that time to heal and grow in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment can be key in accomplishing goals. With Washington State DSHS BFET Program’s support, we will be able to serve women in the following ways:

  • Advocacy Support: We provide survivors who have been victims of intimate partner domestic violence and children who have experienced trauma with advocacy based support through a very difficult time in their life. Learn more.
  • Essentials: This 12-week intensive program provides survivors with a safe cohort atmosphere that is designed to prepare participants to be successful with educational goals, seeking work, and sustaining employment. Learn more. 
  • Women to Work Program: This program provides a safe, friendly atmosphere for survivors to develop their technical skills, network with employers, receive one-on-one guidance, and develop their resume and job portfolio. Learn more.




We deeply appreciate Washington State DSHS BFET Program for their commitment to empowering women and families. Thank you for helping women and families escaping domestic violence, unemployment, and homelessness reach their highest potential! Below is a quote from Angelic, a client who benefits from the Women’s Opportunity Center. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank Bank of America for helping women like Angelic with their gift.

“It’s just been one amazing service after another. It’s all worked together to bring about this harmony in my life. Between the counseling, Essentials, BFET, computer lab, all of it together has made a huge difference for me personally. It has so radically helped me. It’s important women, and men too, have a safe space to come, heal, and reclaim life.”- Angelic, YWCA Spokane Client
