Thank you to DSHS for your grant to benefit YWCA Spokane’s Women to Work Program!

Because of their amazing support, YWCA Spokane’s Women to Work program will continue to provide women with an Essentials Training Program for WorkFirst participants, including a family violence component. The Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) has granted our services with a gift for the next year. With this gift, we will be able to help women to gain the awareness, self-confidence, motivation, and skills necessary to successfully gain and retain employment.

Their gift makes a major impact in the lives of those we serve. Through multiple avenues of support and services, we will be able fully to help women achieve their professional goals. With DSHS’s support, we will be able to serve women and families in our community during some of the most difficult times of their lives. We are so thankful for their incredible support!


We deeply appreciate DSHS for their commitment to empowering women and families in Washington. Thank you for helping women and families escaping intimate partner domestic violence, unemployment, and homelessness reach their highest potential! Below is a quote from Angelic, a client who benefits from our services. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank DSHS for helping women like Angelic with their gift.

“I’ve used almost every one of the services here and it’s changed the trajectory of my life. I was thinking this morning, if it wasn’t for YWCA Spokane I can honestly say I don’t even know if I’d be alive. I was ready to give up. This place has been a huge part of changing the course of my life. It’s the people here. It’s been amazing.”- YWCA Spokane Client
