Empowering Women and Girls
Promoting Peace, Justice, Freedom, and Dignity for all
The YWCA West Central Michigan takes a holistic approach to the issue of addressing domestic and sexual violence, child sexual abuse, dating violence and stalking. Our response to these issues is comprehensive and inclusive of community partners. Our agency provides primary prevention (Girls Incorporated, community training and education), early intervention (forensic nurse examiner programs, 24/7 crisis intervention, crisis counseling and support groups). Ongoing clinical intervention includes in-office and in-home therapy and counseling for families and individuals. Safe Connections provides a safe environment for supervised child visitation and exchange for families who have experienced interpersonal violence. Our domestic violence shelter provides immediate safety in a supportive environment, while Project HEAL (Housing, Employment Advocacy and Legal support) offers long term interventions through transitional and permanent housing. Our efforts toward addressing interpersonal violence are coordinated and collaborative. The approach to improving performance involves multiple community partners and disciplines in establishing the plans, processes and mechanisms that comprise performance and quality improvement activities. Our improvement.
