The King County Women’s Program provides information on domestic violence and sexual assault resources and services in King County.
The King County Women’s Program does not provide these services directly. Instead, the Women’s Program contracts with community-based agencies located across the county that specialize in issues concerning women. The primary focus of these programs is to increase the safety of women who have been victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault.
Services and programs funded through the Women’s Program include:
- Emergency shelter for survivors of domestic violence
- Support groups for women and children who have been impacted by domestic violence or sexual assault
- Information and referral services to families with low incomes seeking quality childcare
- Transitional housing in order to address homelessness
- Legal assistance, including referrals to legal resources
- Information and referrals to available resources in the community
- Community education and outreach to provide increased understanding on domestic violence and sexual assault issues.
