Bringing our mission to life
Since 1903, YWCA Spokane has been helping women and children overcome social, economic, and personal barriers in order to accomplish their goals and achieve healthier and more fulfilling lives.
Today our areas of focus include supporting victims of intimate partner domestic violence (DV) regardless of gender, fostering economic advancement of women, and promoting early childhood education and support for families.
In addition to providing free, confidential, and trauma-informed programs and services to over 15,000 members of our community in and around the Spokane area every year, YWCA is also focused on breaking generational cycles of violence and confronting racial and social justice issues impacting our clients and our community and serving as a voice for what is right, fair, and just.
We embrace our mission through a continuum of wrap-around services including:
- 24-hour helpline services,
- confidential safe shelter services,
- safety planning and mental health therapy,
- child advocacy and youth prevention work,
- civil legal assistance and legal advocacy for survivors,
- financial education and advocacy,
- job training, mentorship, and skill building opportunities.
