Advocacy Based Support
Call 509.789.9297 to speak with our friendly support staff.
YWCA Spokane’s domestic violence services include advocacy-based, individualized, and trauma-informed support for domestic violence survivors and their children.
Whether you are in a relationship that you think might be abusive, are trying to make things work, or have left your relationship, an advocate can help you make sense of your feelings and decide what you want to do, without judgement.
We offer confidential appointments to talk about your situation, obtain education and information about domestic intimate partner violence, discuss safety planning, and find out about community services and resources. We also offer LGBTQ affirming counseling and maintain awareness and competency of issues surrounding intimate partner violence in LGBTQ relationships. We believe that with enough support and encouragement, you can be free to make your own choices.
The counseling center also offers weekly support groups. A support group is simply a safe place to talk to other women who have experienced abuse in their relationships. Services are also available for men by appointment, just call 789-9297.
Many survivors feel for the first time that they are not alone and discover that there are others who share their feelings. In groups you are able to discuss and get support from others on your experience with domestic violence. Our groups offer childcare with registration.
To make an appointment, please call: (509) 789-9297.
Mental health therapeutic support services are also available. Learn more.
