The YWCA, founded in Tacoma in 1906, has always focused on safety and inclusion. Since 1976, our focus has been on providing comprehensive services for domestic violence victims and their families, turning victims to survivors and providing everything they need to thrive. Our services include a 90-day emergency shelter, legal representation and advocacy, therapy, Support Groups, permanent housing and therapeutic Children and Youth Programs. Our services are LGBTQ friendly and open to anyone who is a victim, regardless of gender or gender identity. Our shelter also accepts pets, the only shelter in the region that does. The YWCA Pierce County has been the recipient of numerous awards for their innovative and comprehensive services.
