Join WomenSpirit Coalition and Together, We Can Make a Difference

WomenSpirit Coalition is a 501(c)3 located in Silverdale, WA. WSC was founded in 2002 and has been providing sustainable, culturally appropriate services to Indian Country for the last 17 years. In partnership with tribes and tribal programs, we work to end domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, dating violence and sex trafficking by providing programs with consultation, training and technical support. We offer a wide range of services, committees, advisory boards and volunteer opportunities to our members and communities.

We are the certified by the Office of Violence Against Women to serve as Washington State’s Tribal Coalition. We are funded partly through OVW Grant 2018-IW-AX-0004 and partly through the generous donations of our programs and members.

WSC is proud to announce that we have expanded our services to include the Indigenous Crime Victim Services Referral and Resource Center (ICVSRRC). This program intends to provide crime victim’s services to all indigenous people, regardless of area of residence or tribal affiliation. Further, ICVSRRC aims to bridge a gap in services by assisting with crime victim compensation, victim impact statements and providing technical assistance and consultation to tribal nations.
