Clackamas Women’s Services breaks the isolation of domestic and sexual violence. We offer comprehensive and responsive solutions for adults and children, with a wide range of wrap-around emergency, transitional, and long-term services for those who have been impacted by domestic and sexual violence, elder abuse, stalking and trafficking. This includes shelter and housing resources, 24/7 crisis line, mental health counseling, support groups, legal advocacy, youth violence prevention education, and Camp HOPE Oregon.
Bottom Line for Portland
Clackamas Women’s Services’ impact in 2019: 1,500 survivors were supported by community-based advocates; 1,319 violence prevention lessons were provided in elementary, middle and high school classrooms; 247 adults and children had a safe place to stay at The Village Shelter; 118 adults and youth received 995 mental health sessions; and 179 survivors accessed housing programs and supportive services.
“I love the comfort and the support of this place. I feel as though the pain and painful experiences that I have had are really and truly seen. Before this, I felt like the hurts/wounds were just made-up, like I was making a big deal out of little things. But now I know that telling the truth is not making a big deal out of nothing.” —Counseling program participant
