Since 1982, we have partnered with more than 160,000 domestic violence survivors on their courageous journeys towards safety, stability, and healing. By offering one-on-one advocacy and support, we work each day to ensure the safety and enduring independence of every survivor who walks through our doors.
Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness among women and children in the U.S. We believe that no survivor should have to choose between staying in an abusive relationship and becoming homeless. That's why we've developed a wide range of services to help keep survivors and their families off the streets and in safe and stable housing.
We partner with area high schools, Bellevue College, and UW Bothell to ensure that young people have the tools they need to identify and build healthy relationships, support each other and family members, and practice leadership skills that promote gender equity and challenges violent attitudes and behaviors.
