Clackamas Women’s Services offers free services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence providing support to individuals and families as they work towards a self-sufficient, violence free life. We also offer prevention skills training and advocacy education for students and citizens in Clackamas County.
CWS Emergency Services include our emergency Shelter where women and children fleeing domestic violence can find emergency housing and other support and our 24-hour Crisis and Support Line where survivors and their families can get confidential help and support when in crisis or just in need of a sympathetic ear..
Our Community Based services includes a housing program, legal advocacy, a family advocacy program out-stationed in the DHS and Community Health offices, and a rural program with satellite offices in Sandy and Estacada and services in Canby and Molalla. Additionally, Community Based staff works to create understanding through-out Clackamas County by inviting community leaders and other interested individuals to engage in the work we do through networking and community conversations.
Confidential Counseling and Support Groups are available to women, family, and youth through individual/family mental health counseling and support groups. We offer a supportive, non-judgmental environment where adult and youth survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families can find support and encouragement to heal.
The Youth Education and Prevention program offers a wide range of prevention and intervention education classes that teach kids about healthy relationships and give them powerful tools for addressing conflict and promoting healthy relationships.
CWS strives to offer Culturally-Specific programming where ever possible. Presently we offer Latina culturally specific services in most program areas including at our shelter, on our 25-hour support line, and in our community based program offering survivors support in navigating the court system, social service system, and with housing or other needs.
