Becoming a Sponsor
Your generous partnership with YWCA Clark County to sponsor one of the SafeChoice rooms helps fund our Domestic Violence Program shelter and transitional housing locations, helping women and their families leave an abusive relationship or situation.
With your sponsorship, your (or your organization’s) name will appear on a custom nameplate, recognizing your support, for the duration of one year. Annual first right of renewal on your adopted room.
Who We Help
Domestic violence can happen to anyone, regardless of age, educational background, income level, religion, ethnicity, and sexual and gender identity.
Domestic violence is abusive behavior used to gain power and control over an intimate partner. Abuse can be physical, emotional, sexual, or financial. It is a learned behavior, and is not caused by anger, drugs or alcohol, or stress.
History of SafeChoice
The SafeChoice Domestic Violence Program advocates for, educates, and supports those affected by domestic violence. SafeChoice has served Clark County since 1974.
In addition to operating the only domestic violence shelter serving Clark County, SafeChoice offers free and confidential services for the immediate needs of victim-survivors in our community.
In an average year, SafeChoice serves about 1,000 survivors, engages in more than 6,000 hotline calls, and supports more than 1,500 children.
With your support, we can have an even greater impact.
How We Help
By supporting the YWCA Clark County and the Adopt-A-Room Program, you are making sure survivors and their children fleeing domestic violence have a safe place and can connect with advocates to develop a personalized safety plan, receive education on domestic violence, and get information and referrals to relevant community resources.
Because of community partners like you, YWCA Clark County is able to address all elements of the cycle of violence and provide a customized pathway toward healing for each survivor.
