The Strategic Alliance exploratory process includes facilitated discussions with a diverse group of stakeholders, including service providers, community advocates, justice professionals and clients who use, or may need to use, the system of family violence prevention and domestic violence services currently in place. A decision will not be made regarding recommendations for a new Inter-Local Agreement until the findings from the process have been received.

Our Commitment

We are committed to continuing to honor Crystal Judson as we consider how to strengthen family violence prevention and domestic violence services. The County and City do not anticipate any funding changes in 2019 that will impact the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center or the YWCA Pierce County.
