Our Vision: A community where individuals thrive in safe, healthy relationships.
For people leaving an abusive relationship, safety is often the most important concern. Without a safe place to live, it is hard to get a good night’s sleep. Knowing that you can fall asleep without having to be afraid of what might happen to you while you do—is critical to our health.
safe places for women to live has been at the core of the WCA’s mission since
its founding in 1910, as a Boise Young Women’s Christian Association
(YWCA). In the 1980’s, our mission began to evolve, focusing on the needs
of the community and serving women, men and children healing from domestic
abuse and sexual assault. However we have never lost sight of the importance of
a safe place to lay your head at night.
more than 30 years, the WCA has been at the forefront of providing services to those
healing from domestic abuse and sexual assault.
