Who We Are
LifeWire has been providing domestic violence services and programs to the community since 1982. We have grown to become one of Washington State’s largest domestic violence service providers and a recognized leader in the field. We work closely with local and regional human service agencies to provide life-saving and life-changing programs and services to help victims and their children separate safely from an abuser, restore trust, develop self-sufficiency and build peaceful families.

Community Impact
Our clients represent a broad cross-section of the population spanning gender, age, and race. Since 1982 LifeWire has provided safety, support, and accessibility to more than 131,000 victims of domestic violence. Your support makes this possible. You play a huge role in our work to successfully reach the most vulnerable people in our community. Here are a few of the many ways your generosity changed lives in 2015. LifeWire by the numbers:
  1. You answered 8,445 callers on the 24-Hour Helpline, providing callers with advocacy, safety planning, legal resources and life-changing programs and services that heal, educate and empower.

  2. You gave hope to 4,196 victims of domestic violence who came to LifeWire for direct services - mental health counseling, legal services, prevention and education, shelter and housing stability - empowering them to end domestic violence in their lives, helping them regain strength and courage.

  3. You are ending homelessness by providing 664 individuals with safe confidential shelter and housing services. Keeping families housed instead of homeless.

  4. You are creating lasting social change educating 11,700 individuals and teaching skills to prevent and end domestic violence:
    1. 2,500 students in 15 area schools learned how to prevent teen dating violence and were taught skills to build healthy relationships
    2. 30 customized trainings were taught to community partners and businesses teaching prevention and intervention skills to end domestic violence.

We have seen a dramatic increase in the need for our services as families struggle to meet their basic needs. Even if we were 100% funded and staffed, the need would still be greater than the resources available. We depend on funding from the government, corporation and foundation grants, private donations, as well as the generous support of the communities to help their neighbors in need through donations and volunteerism.
 

I used to live in fear – now I am safe thanks to LifeWire.
