YWCA is the only state certified domestic violence service provider in Kitsap County – working to advance justice through direct service programs, safety planning, advocacy, case management, emergency shelter, permanent housing, criminal and civil justice court navigation, support groups, prevention, education, and community outreach. Our community and our clients are owed respect, justice, and healing. Here, a woman is empowered to leave an abusive relationship. Here, a family breaks the cycle of violence. Here, we bear witness to a survivor’s dignity, and celebrate their victories. Here, a mother and her children escape their abuser, avoid homelessness, and access safe, permanent housing. Here, community leaders learn how to interrupt the cycle of generational violence and empower young people to form healthy relationships. But we don’t do it alone. It takes a community to end domestic violence – and Kitsap County CAN interrupt the cycle.
