Last Chance To Support Survivors During DVAM!

October is Domestic Violence Action Month (DVAM) & YWCA Spokane Looks To Raise $50,000 by October 31st!

Throughout the last several weeks, we have offered the Spokane community many ways to spread awareness and step into action during DVAM. In addition, we are looking to raise $50,000 in critical funds that will allow us to continue to serve over 16,500 women, men, children, and families who are impacted by domestic violence, homelessness, and unemployment.

Will you help us reach our goal?

There are 3 days left raise critical funds this October!

Consider making a donation today to help ensure our free and confidential services remain available. We have raised over $32,000 so far! We are so close to achieving this critical goal for October. Please know your donations are vital to our work and mission and allow us to keep our doors open for survivors of domestic violence and their families.


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.

In Case You Missed It!

Below are several opportunities we released throughout October to help make a difference with domestic violence in our community.

  • Chalk Walk: We let survivors know they weren’t allow through our public chalk walk in downtown Spokane
  • YW Table Talk: We talked with the business community about what they could do in their workplaces to make a difference
  • Makayla’s Story: We shared a powerful story of a local survivor who moved from surviving to thriving,
  • Pathways Forward: We took a deeper look at what each of us can do to step into action through our Pathways Forward discussion with local experts
  • DV Educational Series: We also offered a free educational series that explored intimate partner domestic violence and how YWCA Spokane offers trauma-informed services designed to lift up survivors as they move towards safety and a better tomorrow.
