Since 1975 we have been the only nonprofit agency in Washington County, Oregon serving specifically survivors of domestic violence. Our free and bilingual services focus on prevention (community outreach, presentations, trainings, education, library), intervention (Monika’s House Shelter, legal advocacy, counseling, group support, art/play/filial therapy), and empowerment (Survivor Empowerment Fund, advocacy, resources, referrals, safety planning).
Our programs and major services:
- 24-Hour Crisis Line
- Monika’s House Shelter, Washington County’s only emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence in imminent physical danger.
- Protective Order Advocacy Program, a legal advocacy program for those needing restraining orders, stalking protective orders, or elder/disabled abuse protective orders.
- Clinical Counseling Program, a counseling program for adults and children who have experienced domestic violence at any time in their life.
- Community Outreach, providing education, presentations, training, and other resources about domestic violence.
We do not
discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, gender identification or any other characteristic protected by law. Our services are bilingual, culturally sensitive, close to public transportation and handicapped-accessible. Our main geographic focus is Washington County, Oregon, but many survivors we serve come from Multnomah and Clackamas Counties as well as from other Oregon counties and out of state.
