YWCA Spokane receives grant from Providence Health Care

With a grant from Providence Health Care's Community Benefit Fund program, YWCA Spokane begins its second year of offering support to victims of intimate partner violence in the healthcare setting. Intimate Partner Violence Hospital Response Program is a partnership between YWCA Spokane and Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children's Hospital and Providence Holy Family Hospital, which connects victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) with trained advocates through partnerships with healthcare providers and law enforcement to mitigate the impacts of IPV on both victims and their children. The program builds on tools and processes developed with law enforcement to train medical staff in best-practices for identifying and screening for IPV. Through these partnerships, the YWCA delivers confidential, in-person advocacy to provide victims with information and safety planning, connect them to resources, and give them options so they are not forced to return to their abusers.

Presentation of the grant award included YWCA hospital advocates and law enforcement from the Domestic Violence Unit housed within the Spokane Family Justice Center at YWCA Spokane. For more information, visit www.ywcaspokane.org.
