The YWCA Yakima is the largest provider of domestic violence services in Yakima County and provides the only shelter in the City of Yakima. In addition, the YWCA Yakima offers the first affordable housing specific to families who are homeless as a result of domestic violence. The primary focuses of the YWCA Yakima are: Empowering Women and Girls; Building Self-Sufficient Women; Eliminating Family Violence; Embracing Diversity; Eliminating Racism; and Maximizing Partnerships.

We are proud and grateful to partner with such an amazing organization. By registering to run for the Yakima Mile or by coming to support the race in attendance, you can join us in our efforts in running domestic violence out of the Yakima Valley.

YWCA continues to serve 14,000 people across the Yakima Valley.

On average YWCA Yakima answers 1,000 crisis calls a month. This is a 50% increase over prior years.

In 2023 there were over 1,000 families that could not be provided emergency shelter on their first call for safe shelter.
