October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

This October, YWCA Richmond is on a mission to end domestic violence with a variety of free educational outreach activities & a robust social media advocacy campaign during Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Join our #OnaMission Campaign to End Domestic Violence

YWCA Richmond is committed to supporting, empowering and educating survivors of domestic violence and our communities. We are on a mission every day to end domestic violence through our various resources we provide to survivors. Through our emergency shelter, case management, counseling, 24/7/365 crisis hotline, hospital accompaniment program and advocacy services, YWCA Richmond provides support to survivors while working to prevent and end domestic violence from occurring in our Richmond and Chesterfield communities. One way we want you to join our #OnaMission campaign is by creating a safe and supportive space online for the strong individuals who have faced the trauma of domestic violence.


Our Facebook page offers a glimpse at the programming we’re offering this month. All activities are free, but we will accept optional donations to support YWCA Richmond’s programs to prevent violence and support survivors.  Check out the flyer below for more information and to share with your friends, family, and community.

Also for Domestic Violence Awareness Month, YWCA Richmond is offering free educational programming during the month of October. Contact us to schedule a workshop or training session for your community center, workplace, or school for free. Learn more about what is domestic violence and how it can affect your family, friends, classmates, community members and coworkers.
