Our Sisters' House was founded in 1995 to fill a gap in services for girls of color who were adjudicated in the juvenile system. Today the organization continues to fill in a gap in services for Black and African American women and children who have been impacted and victimized by domestic violence.
Established in Tacoma in 1906, YWCA Pierce County has devoted over a century to creating opportunity and safety for adults and children in the greater Tacoma community. After opening Washington State’s first emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence in 1976, YWCA became a forerunner in the domestic violence service provision field.
Established in 2005 through an agreement between Pierce County and the City of Tacoma, the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center (FJC) serves the needs of domestic violence victims and their children by providing comprehensive victim services in one, central, safe location in downtown Tacoma.
The KWA Domestic Violence Assistance program provides services to any and all survivors, regardless of gender, age, race/ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or other cultural identities. Supportive services are provided at a separate location from the confidential shelter. Please call the 24-hour hotline for further details. We provide services not only for those who face immediate partner violence but other crimes such as financial exploitation, scamming, voice phishing, fraud, hate crime, discrimination, and others.
