OUR HISTORY

24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

The WCA has been an important community partner for 110 years. Originally started as the YWCA by nine pioneering women, it offered safe housing for women drawn from rural areas to Boise for work. Building on this foundation, the WCA is focused on a core mission of providing safety, healing and freedom from domestic abuse and sexual assault.

Since 1910, the Women’s and Children’s Alliance (WCA) has provided safe housing for women in Boise, Idaho. However, in the last 40 years, the focus has been narrowed to provide shelter and supportive services to individuals impacted by domestic violence and/or sexual assault. These services are provided at no-cost, and span a four-county service area representing 30 percent of the population of the state of Idaho. Since its founding, the WCA’s crisis program has evolved into one of the most vital, unduplicated, comprehensive programs in our community and region.

The WCA has been at the forefront of providing services to women, men and their children healing from domestic abuse and sexual assault.  The WCA is proud to be a community leader in providing these critically needed services. We’ve been an important community partner for 110 years and providing safe places for women to live has always been at the core of our mission.
