The goal of KWRCC is to improve the status of victims and we advocate for the rights of victims and their children to live free from fear, violence, and abuse and take responsibility for their own lives.
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.
