The goal of Team DAWN is to build awareness of DAWN's life-saving programs and services available to survivors of domestic violence by collaborating with our community's running enthusiasts, the companies they work for, and the fitness organizations to which they belong.
DAWN’s mission is to lead and support efforts in south King County communities to end domestic violence by providing the critical services and education for survivors to make informed choices about their future and engaging communities to raise awareness and take action.
DAWN's services include: the only 24-hour Advocacy & Crisis Line in south King County; a continuum of housing program - a 40-bed confidential emergency shelter, an extended stay transitional housing program, and hotel/motel vouchers; community-based advocacy program with legal advocacy, support groups, prevention education to local middle and high school youth, mental health services, and a Kid’s Club program for children (and their moms) affected by domestic violence. Interpretation services and TTP are available. All services are provided free of charge.
