Everyone deserves a life free of violence. At WSCADV, we are working to create a world where all people can live and love freely without fear. Throughout the past three years, your coalition navigated many shifts as the world changed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We supported our member programs to best meet the needs of survivors in their local communities, engaged the public, and led with vision for violence prevention and healing from trauma. 

Letter from the Executive Director

To our beloved community,

In the midst of tremendous global upheaval over the past three years, domestic violence programs across Washington remained a steadfast support for survivor households. WSCADV’s membership of over 70 member programs adapted to meet emerging needs and overcome uncertainty. You, our membership and generous supporters, have been an essential part of the web holding together a safety net for survivors and their children.

Supporting our member programs

Our member programs help survivors and their children move toward safety and freedom. We provide programs with the training and tools they need to do their best work.

The impact: With our support, programs were equipped to best meet the needs of survivors in their communities while working on a shared vision to create a world where all people can live and love freely without fear.

Since 2020 the world has changed, and throughout that time member programs have continuously adapted their services and navigated challenges to meet the emerging needs of survivors and their children. Over the past three years, WSCADV was there for local programs so they could be there for their community.

Visionary leadership

WSCADV develops policy recommendations and innovative new programs to create a safer, more just world.

The impact: Our visionary leadership increased options for people to find safety and justice and helped the next generation heal from trauma.

As domestic violence survivors and programs faced a sharp rise in violence, devastating funding shortfalls, racial injustice, and the global economic downturn, WSCADV offered practical support and a shared vision for communities where all people can live and love without fear. WSCADV increased community economic resilience, got cash to survivor households, and invested in new solutions to prevent violence. 

Engaging the public

Survivors of abuse reach out to friends and family for help far more often than they turn to the legal system or emergency domestic violence programs. If you’re that one person someone turns to for help, we want you to know what to do.

The impact: Our public engagement helped people understand they have a role to play in promoting healthy relationships and give them the tools they need to do so. 

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world got to learn about the trauma of isolation and the power of connection. Support from friends, family, and community is critical in the lives of survivors of violence. Domestic violence is a big issue, but everyone can do something about it. That’s why WSCADV creates and distributes practical tools such as our Friends and Family Guide in English and Spanish. Since 2021, we have reached over 4,200 participants in our annual Refuse To Abuse® 5K with two powerful messages: Domestic violence is 100% preventable, and survivors: You are not alone.
