A Local Survivor Shares Her Story Of Surviving To Thriving

Join us during nationally recognized Week Without Violence for the release of Surviving to Thriving, the healing journey of Makayla, a local domestic violence survivor.

For survivors, resilience is central to weathering the mental, physical, and emotional harm of gender-based violence and racism. We recognize the limits and honor the significance of resilience in surviving violence but aim to collectively work towards healing, which includes replenishment, rest, and recovery.

We want to shift the focus away from a survivor’s endurance and towards centering their healing and building a future that flourishes in a way they deserve.

Help YWCA Spokane Raise $50,000 in Critical Funds for Survivors

This October, YWCA Spokane looks to raise $50,000 in order to ensure our free and confidential services remain available to the 16,500 women, men, children, and families who seek us out each year when they are impacted by domestic violence, homelessness, and unemployment.

A reduction in the availability of flexible funding sources, and our inability to hold our traditional fundraising events this year due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, have created an urgent need for unrestricted dollars raised through your support.

DONATE TODAY

Since 1903, we have been helping community members overcome social, economic, and personal barriers in order to accomplish their goals and achieve healthier and more fulfilling lives. Today, areas of focus include supporting victims of intimate partner domestic violence, promoting early childhood education and the economic advancement of women, and confronting racial and social justice issues that negatively impact our clients and our community. You can learn more about our impact in Spokane here.
