 The YWCA works closely with the Domestic/Sexual Assault Outreach Center (D/SAOC), a local agency  which provides safety, support and hope to adult and child victims of sexual assault and domestic violence, because all people deserve a violence-free life and a compassionate community.

D/SAOC provides free and confidential services...

  • 24-hour toll-free crisis line with advocates available to listen, support and believe
  • Safe Shelter for victims and their children. Services may include counseling, food, clothing, and other options within the shelter's capabilities
  • Individual Counseling for victims
  • Support Groups (English and Spanish) to provide support, as well as education
  • Child Advocates to support and educate children who have experience
  • Public Awareness to provide accurate and helpful information on physical, sexual and emotional abuse
  • Violent Crime Survivor Support to survivors of violent crime
  • Minority Outreach to focus on bridging the gap between services offered by the Domestic/Sexual Assault Outreach Center and the minority population in our communities

   While many of the women residing at the YWCA have experienced domestic violence in their lifetimes, for those who are fleeing an abusive relationship that is potentially life-threating, the most appropriate shelter is provided by D/SAOC with its 24 hour locked security.  The mission of the YWCA -- empowering women to be self sufficient--compliments the D/SAOC mission of safety, support and hope to adult and child victims of sexual assault and domestic violence because all people deserve a violence free life and compassionate community.
