Get Involved


Over 230 dedicated community members volunteer 4000 hours of their time, energy, skills, and resources to YWCA Spokane each year by conducting necessity drives, sorting donations, facilitating classes, working in the computer lab, reading to children, participating on committees and helping with events.

Make a difference in your community by volunteering your time and skills at YWCA Spokane. There are many ways you can support women and families, including one-time events, one-on-one program support, ongoing tasks and group projects.

Host A Domestic Violence Training

1-3 women in Spokane will have experienced domestic violence in their lifetime. Chances are that you work with, supervise, are friends with, or are related to someone who is experiencing domestic violence. It can be difficult to know what to do and how to response when a domestic violence interaction occurs that could impact your business, you, or your personal network.

Our Community Educator welcomes an opportunity to connect with you and your group to facilitate discussions, provide workshops, or teach classes for your group about intimate partner violence.

Though our Make it Your Business campaign, we educate business people how to recognize the signs of intimate partner violence, how to respond in a supportive way when an employee or coworker reveals violence, and how to properly refer people to services for intimate partner violence.

Whether your group includes college classes, church groups, legal teams, medical professionals, or knitting groups, we welcome the opportunity to work with you to create a safer and healthier community.
