The Tillamook County Women's Resource Center mission is to eliminate domestic and sexual violence in our community.
The Women’s Resource Center is committed to the safety and empowerment of all individuals who have experienced any form of oppression or violence or who perceive themselves to be at risk.
We believe that violence of any kind (physical, emotional, verbal or sexual) is intolerable and that everyone has the right to freedom from fear and violence.
We believe violence is a result of a system of oppression that is imbedded in our society.
We believe people are inherently equal and that discrimination on any basis is a denial of basic human rights. Examples include, but are not limited to, gender, age, color, immigration status, religion, spiritual beliefs, sexual orientation or ethnic and/or cultural background.
We believe it is important to provide survivors of violence the opportunity to discuss their experiences with advocates who are empathetic and sensitive to the seriousness of their experiences.
We believe it is crucial that the people we serve are supported to make decisions for themselves and we emphasize our sincere belief in their right to do so.
We believe people of all ages have the basic right to safety, dignity, respect and equality. They have the right to express themselves, to be heard and to live in a non-violent environment.
The Tillamook County Women’s Resource Center seeks to empower all people we serve to make their own decisions and help themselves. We will provide unconditional, non-judgmental support regardless of individual choices or the number of times people have come to us.
TCWRC adheres to strict federal and state guidelines regarding confidentially. No information regarding any client will be disclosed to anyone outside the center without their informed, written, time-limited, specific, signed release of information.
No clients will be encouraged to report or not report any rape, assault or other crime against their will. Our clients are the best judges of which services they need and when they need them. Our role is to provide as many options as possible and support our clients’ choices.
