The mission of the Kodiak Womens Resource and Crisis Center (KWRCC) is to help women develop inner strength and achieve their fullest potential. We are dedicated to the prevention and elimination of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault by providing education and promoting community awareness.
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit membership corporation dedicated to improving the status of Victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. KWRCC began in 1976 as a womens discussion group. It has grown to provide a voice and answer the needs of Kodiak and its surrounding communities by providing immediate safety, crisis intervention, advocacy with the legal, medical, social, law enforcement, and mental health systems, community education and support, and rural outreach.
KWRCC specifically provides a 25 bed safe shelter facility for victims and their children, a 24-hour Crisis Line staffed by trained employees and volunteers, a coordinated sexual assault response team, advocacy services, a clothing bank, and referral services to other community partners.
We provide services to individuals without regard to race, creed, marital status, sexual preference or identity, age, affiliation or any other discriminating factor.
