YWCA Pierce County

In alignment with YWCA USA’s mission, YWCA Pierce County is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. YWCA Pierce County seeks to transform lives through safety, healing, and empowerment.

As an inclusionary nonprofit organization, YWCA Pierce County provides assistance to survivors of domestic violence and their children. All survivors are welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity or expression, religion, or sexual orientation. Bilingual staff and interpretation services eliminate language barriers and ease transitions for all of our clients. In the last three years, YWCA has served an average of over 11,000 adults and children annually, who are seeking help due to domestic violence.

YWCA Pierce County is committed to eliminating racism by creating a community of social justice, which means we work for inclusion and equality for all people, regardless of race. We do that within our organization by educating staff, implementing inclusive policies and practices, and practicing nondiscrimination in our services. We do this in the community by promoting and supporting inclusion, equity and social justice, and by partnering with other organizations who share those values and activities.
