Safe Shelter


YWCA Walla Walla offers shelter to women and children escaping domestic violence.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We have adopted significant changes in operating procedures and disinfection schedules to minimize the risk of transmission. All residents will be made aware of the new procedures, which include wearing masks whenever they are outside their own rooms, disinfecting shared spaces after use, having daily health screenings, and more. Our state domestic violence coalition, in partnership with the King County health department, is providing excellent support specific to shelters.

We have two shelters: the women’s residence, and the family shelter. Both are located in Walla Walla. The YWCA women’s residence has 13 rooms, plus cribs and youth beds. The family shelter has 15 beds, plus cribs and youth beds. The family shelter was built to accommodate larger families and families with boys 10-17 years old.

Both shelters have family-style living, shared kitchens, shared bathrooms, and small rooms that adjoin if necessary to accommodate larger families.
