About Us

Domestic violence is a complex problem with no simple solution. Yet we’ve collected a team of experts focused on one single goal: Ending the Violence within our community. This is a big dream, but together, we are making a community impact. And here’s how we do it. We exist to educate, collaborate, and innovate.

Why We Exist

End the Violence Coalition has been around in various forms since the early 1990s. Its primary purpose is the elimination of domestic violence through collaboration and partnership with community agencies/entities made up from various sectors including law enforcement, government officials, victim advocacy groups, treatment providers, school representatives, and family and child-serving organizations, amongst others. The Coalition is focused on preventing domestic violence; educating the general public and creating awareness about domestic violence; and continued community collaboration and coordination in eliminating domestic violence.

Founding Funders

Community Partners


The End the Violence Coalition (ETVC) developed their five-year strategic plan to reduce domestic violence. Reports and data show that Spokane experiences higher rates of child abuse, neglect, and other forms of violence than other areas of the state. Domestic violence calls to law enforcement rose 40% in 2020, while the COVID-19 pandemic continues to amplify disparities and add stress in our community.
To stop this trend, ETVC and partners have created this strategic plan to ensure:
1. All community members can access information they need to end the violence.
2. Accountability and safety for victims.
2. Systems that inspire trust among all community members.
4. Equitable services and resources available to those impacted by or at risk of domestic violence.
5. Community-supported, whole family healing for families.
The strategic planning process was funded by the Innovia Foundation, Kalispel Tribe of Indians and Casino, MultiCare, Numerica Credit Union, and Providence Health Care.
