Eastside Domestic Violence Program is now LifeWire
June 19, 2012
After 30 years, the Eastside Domestic Violence Program is changing its name to LifeWire to better represent its mission of providing safety to victims of domestic violence and the continuum of care LifeWire provides families on the path to healing.
LifeWire’s programs include a 24-hour crisis line, shelters that provide safe housing, advocacy services, groups for children and teens, a Latina outreach program, counseling and women’s support groups. Last year, LifeWire answered nearly 11,000 crisis line calls and worked with almost 5,200 local victims of domestic violence. Since 1982, LifeWire has served more than 115,000 victims and their children, helping them escape from abusive homes and relationships.
