What We Do

WSCADV is the leading voice to end domestic violence in Washington State. We improve how communities respond to domestic violence and are working to create a world where all people can live and love without fear. 

WSCADV Projects

Domestic Violence Housing First

Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness for women and children. Domestic Violence Housing First gets survivors into stable housing as quickly as possible, and then provides support as they rebuild their lives.

Economic Justice

We believe everyone should have access to money, housing, childcare, and education so they can make decisions about their relationships without regard for the financial impact of those decisions.

Fatality Review

Our Domestic Violence Fatality Review provides up-to-date statistics for Washington State and research findings and recommendations for improving the community response to domestic violence.

Immigrant Justice

Survivors tell us that immigration status and cultural isolation are major barriers to getting safe. We offer tools for advocates working to minimize these barriers.

Leadership Development

We help local domestic violence programs with the challenges of running an organization. We promote visionary leadership and management excellence, teach practical skills, and mentor the next generation of skilled leaders.

Legal Advocacy

We provide training and support to legal advocates to help them understand how the legal system works, how to help survivors navigate the legal system, and how to advocate within the legal system on behalf of survivors.

Preventing Violence

Domestic violence is preventable. We provide tools and resources to help individuals, organizations, and communities play a role in stopping this violence before it starts.

Public Policy

Our public policy advocacy includes working for improved laws, helping our members communicate with their legislators, and educating our communities on changes in state and federal law that impact survivors of abuse.

Refuse To Abuse®

Refuse To Abuse® is a partnership between the Seattle Mariners and the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence to take a stand against domestic violence and promote healthy, respectful relationships.

Reproductive Justice

Everyone should be free to make decisions about their body and their family, and experience sexuality without violence, coercion, or external control. We address the link between reproductive and sexual coercion and violence against women and girls.

Shelter Support

We provide support and peer learning opportunities for people running a domestic violence shelter.
