Each year, YWCA associations around the country, friends, partners, and supporters come together in the third week of October for a Week Without Violence, where we raise awareness about the devastating effects of domestic violence. As the largest network of domestic violence service providers, we support victims of domestic violence in communities around the country and work, year-round, on legislative actions and issue education that can bring an end to all forms of violence against women.
#YWCAGoesPurple for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Fridays in October, we ask supporters to wear purple and share photos with #YWCAGoesPurple.

in abusive relationship or those who have been sexually assaulted, the Family
Justice Center offers free, confidential, walk-in services. Reserve your rappel or donate to a team.
