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 advocate for survivors of domestic violence and provide prevention programming to halt the generational cycle of violence. We are on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women by providing supportive services to survivors of domestic violence and educational opportunities to the community on racial equity and social justice. 

Our services include a 24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline and Text Line, emergency shelter, supportive housing, civil and criminal court navigation and accompaniment, legal advocacy services, family advocacy services, support groups, case management, resources and referrals, prevention programming, education, and community outreach.

YWCA Kitsap County depends on our community’s support to ensure that our services continue to create positive change in the lives of families. 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!
