YWCA Sonoma County Programs and Services

YWCA Sonoma County is the leading organization in our community serving the needs of families torn apart by domestic violence, abuse, trauma, homelessness and chronic poverty. Our programs assist families with both short-term and long-term services who experience hardships and mental health crises due to exposure to domestic violence, prolonged homelessness, abuse, and other trauma.

YWCA's services are trauma-informed, community focused and merited as the best practice. We give special consideration to potential barriers to participation such as cultural sensitivity, inclusion, and access challenges, and follow evidence-based practices.

Safe House: Opened in 1975, the YWCA's 32-bed Safe House is the ONLY state-designated, confidential domestic violence shelter in Sonoma County for families fleeing domestic violence. Survivors become empowered through intervention, prevention, and treatment services, and discover their own internal resources for making positive changes in their lives.

Encore Program: YWCA's Encore Program assists families who have exited the Safe House by providing long-term case management and an array of services to help them work towards self-sufficiency.

Moving into Safety (Rapid Re-housing): This program implements 3-tier model of housing assistance with comprehensive services. Services may include housing relocation and placement, housing stabilization, financial assistance and other support based on clients' needs.

A Special Place (ASP) Therapeutic Pre-School: Founded in 1978, ASP is a full-time, year-round therapeutic pre-school and childcare program for children who have been impacted by trauma such as abuse & neglect, domestic violence and/or homelessness.

Counseling & Therapy Program: Our licensed therapists are dedicated to providing comprehensive and specialized mental health services for victims of domestic violence, abuse and trauma.

-Crisis Hotline - 24/7 Domestic Violence Hotline fielding crisis calls and referrals
-Family Justice Center - Navigation and advocacy services for victims of violence through a single point of access.
