What We Do

YWCAs across the country have a proud history of eliminating racism and empowering women. We have worked to change history – from ending child labor to pushing for a 40-hour work week, from civil rights to women’s rights, from advocacy for women’s health care to an end to violence against women and girls.

Here in Kitsap County, we are dedicated to ensuring the personal safety, rights, welfare and dignity of those who experience domestic abuse while building partnerships and increasing community awareness to create positive social change.

While law enforcement deals with the domestic violence incident itself, the YWCA deals with the “before and after.” We provide a 24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline and Text Line, emergency shelter, supportive housing, civil and criminal court navigation and accompaniment, legal services advocacy, family advocacy, support groups, resources and referrals, prevention education, and community outreach.

YWCA Kitsap County depends on our community’s support to ensure that our services continue to provide that safety net. On behalf of our staff, board of directors, and most of all, the women, children, and families we serve, thank you for your support by volunteering, attending our fundraisers, donating, and making your financial contributions. We get up and continue the work every day because of you!
