Love the Shelter

YWCA Spokane is proud to announce a new and inspiring campaign called “Love The Shelter” that will ensure life-lasting change and support for survivors fleeing domestic violence.

Love the Shelter is an exciting opportunity to provide support to families staying in our confidential safe shelter over the next four years.

In 2018, we served 259 adults, and 201 children in our shelter. This means that over a four-year time span, we will serve 1,840 people. 804 will be children, and 1,036 expecting mothers and single women. Your support can change the lives of thousands!

Donors can sponsor one or more of the eleven rooms we need to furnish and design to support women and children escaping domestic violence. To learn more about the rooms available to sponsor, please see the room descriptions below or our flyer here.
