Organization Profile

Clackamas Women's Services

The mission of Clackamas Women's Services is to break the isolation of domestic and sexual violence. Our vision is to live in a society that no longer tolerates domestic and sexual violence, but rather thrives on mutual respect. 

Growing from a stand-alone crisis line, CWS was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1985. Since that time, CWS established the first domestic and sexual violence shelter in the county, and has built comprehensive trauma informed/survivor centered services for victims. The agency promotes a wraparound service delivery model where the vast majority of services are not time limited. To achieve the mission of the organization these services include: a 24-crisis and support line, emergency shelter, housing programs, community based (mobile) services, mental health counseling for youth and adults, support groups, legal advocacy, rural outreach services, Lethality Assessment Protocol (LAP) intervention and support, case management and system navigation advocacy, an economic empowerment program and an out-stationed advocates located in the Department of Human Services Child Welfare and Self-Sufficiency offices.
