We have experienced an unprecedented need for our services

What a year. When we started our new fiscal year on July 1, 2019, we were very much looking forward to increasing our prevention and community education work. Little did we know the changes we would face during the last two quarters of this fiscal year. As we navigated the landscape of daily life with new and ever-changing COVID-19 safety protocols starting in early March, we were fortunate to connect with other community agencies to develop the necessary procedures to safeguard our clients’ and staffs’ health. Thanks to these partnerships and the WCA team’s resilience, we were able to maintain services without disruption, even while pivoting to provide some telephonically and virtually.

Our community’s continued support—especially given that all in-person outreach and fundraising events came to an abrupt stop— has been humbling and inspiring. You are part of the reason we have been able to keep our doors open during this time when home is not safe for everyone.

We have experienced an unprecedented need for our services. This calendar year, we have had more than four times as many emergency intakes into shelter than last year. We are experiencing a much higher volume of domestic abuse-related calls to our hotline—an 86 percent increase in our monthly average this year compared to last year. For these members of our community, we are their only lifeline. For us to be able to provide these crucial and life-saving services, you are our foundation.

Please accept this annual report and know that each of the stories included in this report is a testament to the work YOU help make possible.

On behalf of our clients and the entire WCA team—thank you!
