Domestic Violence

  Safety Exit      



If you are experiencing domestic violence and need help right now, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at (800)-799-SAFE (7233). 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner, and nearly half of all men and women have experienced psychological aggression from a partner. 


Understanding what domestic violence is and recognizing the signs are the first steps to escaping the cycle of violence. Domestic violence is a pattern of abusive behavior in an intimate relationship where one person tries to control or dominate the other. Assaulting, threatening or stalking an intimate partner (past or present) is a crime in the State of Washington (RCW 10.99.020)


We are committed to ensuring that our community has resources available to help people experiencing and healing from domestic violence. In the 2023-2024 biennium, we funded more than $1.7 million for services including:  

  • Case management and safety planning
  • Counseling/Behavioral health services
  • Education/Training
  • Legal advocacy
  • Rental subsidies for survivors
  • Sheltering for survivors
  • Support Groups
