To create a safe, nurturing environment for survivors to realize their potential for healing and growth as we work together to end domestic violence.
Bottom Line for Portland
The West’s shelter expansion project doubles the capacity for emergency shelter access for survivors and their children. Survivors are not only offered a bed, they receive extensive advocacy and services, a lifelong support system and, ultimately, “a safe place to begin again.”
“I’ve learned so much. It was a challenge to make the choice to leave everything behind. West Women’s provided an environment to put my life back on track. Because of you I live and breathe, happy to be safe.” —Past resident of the West
