YWCA Spokane is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

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.

Support Our work

Helping to disrupt longstanding societal patterns of trauma

In addition, we offer innovative low-barrier solutions for people in need of a home, which include homelessness prevention, diversion, rapid re-housing, transitional housing, and longer-term permanent supportive housing.
Our early childhood education and early care programs for low-income families provide children with holistic, evidence-based support designed to prepare them for success with elementary school and beyond.

We empower survivors to choose treatment pathways that best meet their needs and align with their safety concerns. By working at the intersections of inequality, poverty, and domestic violence, YWCA Spokane is able to disrupt longstanding societal patterns of trauma.

We are part of an international movement serving over 2 million in the U.S. and 25 million worldwide in 120 countries.

YWCA is bigger than a place—we have been at the forefront of social change for more than 160 years. YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women’s organization in the world. Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 122 countries, including 2 million members in 200 local associations in the United States. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders, and advocate for women’s rights and civil rights in Congress.
