Clackamas Women’s Services (CWS) was incorporated in 1985 as Clackamas County’s first shelter for women and children escaping family violence and domestic abuse. CWS’ service delivery framework is built on trauma-informed best practices that promote safety and self- determination. Our vision is to live in a society that no longer tolerates domestic and sexual violence, but rather thrives on mutual respect.
CWS offers comprehensive, responsive solutions for adults and children impacted by sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, the sex industry, and elder abuse. Through our confidential emergency shelter, our rural outreach office and A Safe Place Family Justice Center, CWS coordinates services with other public and private agencies in order to best serve survivors seeking help. Participants in our programs receive no-cost services by highly trained staff.
Work with project partners to facilitate a multidisciplinary collaborative community response to intervene in and prevent elder abuse (age 50+), including domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence and stalking. Provide coordination of services, project events and in-depth training for various disciplines, including law enforcement, prosecutors, judges and victim service providers. Work with CWS staff and other partners to support the direct services to elder abuse survivors at A Safe Place Family Justice Center and throughout the Clackamas County community. This project is funded by the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) Enhanced Training and Services to End Abuse in Later Life Program.
