Services are provided to clients free of charge and are supported financially by donations and grants. These services are intended for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, friends and family of violence survivors, and other service providers. Skagit DVSAS has bilingual advocates and translation services available for clients who require them.
We provide temporary shelter in a confidential location for domestic violence survivors and their children. If you, or someone you know is experiencing homelessness due to issues with DV, contact our 24-hr hotline at (888) 336-9591.
We offer legal information and education, referrals for legal representation, and assistance with protection orders. We can accompany survivors to court and assist with navigating the deep and often murky waters of the legal system.
Cooperative counseling efforts between our clients and agency advocates focus on empowerment through reinforcing the survivor’s own agency, autonomy, and self-determination. We help survivors develop safety plans, clarify issues, identify and remove barriers and increase self-esteem and awareness.
Speakers, training, and workshops on a wide variety of topics are available to businesses, schools, hospitals, and private businesses and agencies. We offer extensive education & prevention programs throughout the county. For more details, contact us through our web form, or call us at (360) 336-9591.
We offer support at medical exams, including hospital visits. We also help develop parenting skills, locate local resources and provide additional support with food and clothing, children’s services, information and referral, and immigration-specific advocacy.
All services are free and completely confidential.
