Mission Statement

Inspiring life-long action to achieve a world without violence

Description

The Lighthouse (Formerly LVCSS) is a non-profit, United Way agency serving Yakima County. We provide crisis services and education for community members on issues regarding sexual assault/abuse and domestic violence. The agency relies on community volunteers to help run its 24-hour hotline.

Volunteer advocates respond to calls on a 24-hour crisis hotline by providing emotional support, crisis intervention, referrals and information to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as their non-offending family members.

All calls are dispatched to the volunteer’s home or cell phone through the agency’s answering service to keep their personal contact information confidential. Hospital advocates respond to sexual assault or domestic violence calls from our local hospitals and law enforcement agencies.
