Northwest Safeline was founded in 1985 by a local attorney who was interested in using educational materials about domestic violence to increase the awareness about domestic violence issues within the community.
The mission of Northwest Safeline is to provide for the emotional and physical needs of survivors of domestic violence and their children. Northwest Safeline works to break the cycle of domestic violence for the future generations.
NWSL dissolved the agency in 2016, giving all assets to WRAP, who is continuing services to the area.
Northwest Safeline operates three programs:
1. The 24/7 crisis hotline where survivors can call to receive crisis and/or supportive counseling. Staff provide safety planning, domestic violence education, and information on services and options for survivors.
2. The confidential, safe shelter where survivors can receive a temporary home that is safe while they receive case management that empowers the survivor to transition to safe permanent housing of their own.
3. Non-residential services where survivors can receive case management involving advocacy with the courts, law enforcement, hospitals, schools, and other agencies. Survivors can participate in parenting classes, support groups, and professional individual or family counseling. NWSL offers youth specific assessments and workbooks.
