YWCA Clark County’s mission is to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. This YWCA mission statement was adopted by the General Assembly in 2009.

YWCA Clark County has a long history of supporting women, and all oppressed populations in the region. Today we serve more than 12,000 people each year who are escaping domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse and neglect, as well as youth in foster care. We are sustained by the dedication of more than 700 volunteers annually, 850 donors, hundreds of in-kind donors, 70+ powerful staff, as well as grantors and federal funds.

Our mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all is cultivated through the strategic application of services and support. We facilitate this mission through direct service, support groups, community outreach and public policy centered around five foundational programs. They are the SafeChoice Domestic Violence Program, Sexual Assault Program, Y’s Care Children’s Program, Independent Living Skills Program, and Clark County CASA Program.

YWCA Clark County is committed to serving all members of our community who need our services. We accomplish this through:

  • Celebrating and respecting the diversity and dignity of each individual
  • Not charging for services (with the exception of select classes and workshops)
  • Providing Spanish speaking advocates in the Sexual Assault and SafeChoice Domestic Violence Programs
  • Providing Russian speaking advocates for our SafeChoice Porgram
  • Offering specific LGBTQ services in SafeChoice
  • Providing translation services for non-English speaking individuals as needed
    Non-discrimination and equitable access

    Pursuant to federal and state law, community-based advocacy programs receiving federal or state grant funding shall not discriminate, withhold services, or provide preferential treatment on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

      Learn more about non-discrimination

    Certain information shared between certified advocates and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking is protected under Oregon state law. 

      Learn more about confidentiality

    If you have had a negative experience with a shelter or advocacy program, we recommend speaking directly with that organization's executive director or other management personnel. 

    If that fails to resolve the dispute, or you feel that the organization has treated you unfairly, you have the option of submitting a formal complaint to the Oregon Department of Human Services.

    The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence provides training, research and other support to our member programs, in the interest of better serving survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking throughout the state. We do not have regulatory oversight or supervisory authority over our member programs.

    STEP 3: Find your program in the list

    If you see a blue "CLAIM" button next to your program, that means you may claim ownership. Click the button and follow the on-screen instructions.

    NOTE: Each FIND HELP page can have only one designated owner. If someone has already claimed ownership over your program's page, you won't be allowed to submit a claim request.

    If you can't find your program in the list, or your program's page has been claimed by someone you don't recognize, email Jonathan Gates (link sends e-mail), OCADSV Communications and Events Coordinator.

    STEP 4: Wait for approval

    All page ownership requests must be approved by coalition staff, to ensure that only authorized individuals are given access.

    You can expect to receive an update by email within two business days.

    STEP 5: Edit your FIND HELP page

    If your request is approved, log back in to the OCADSV Members Portal, go to your program's page, and click the "Edit" tab at the top.
