Free and confidential advocacy services for survivors of domestic violence throughout Seattle and King County. Programs include community-based advocates and support groups for women, including specialized groups for women of color.

YWCA's Domestic Violence (DV) Advocacy programs protect the safety of survivors through community advocacy programs, support groups, and training for service providers. Advocates can assist with safety planning, referrals for food, clothing, and housing resources, and limited financial assistance.

Community-based advocates are located at DSHS Community Service offices in Belltown, Capitol Hill, Rainier, North Seattle, Auburn, Kent, and Federal Way, and can also meet clients in safe areas. Spanish-speaking advocates are also available.

DV Support Groups

We also offer weekly support groups for DV survivors, including specialized groups for African American and Spanish-speaking women. All meetings locations are confidential; please call us for details.
