Soroptimist Against Violent Environments

The Soroptimist Against Domestic Violence (SAVE) vision is “a world without violence,” and its mission is to eliminate the gap between need and available services for victims of domestic violence and change the social climate that allows domestic violence to continue in our community. SAVE provides assistance and support to facilities that give shelter to victims of domestic violence.

All the money Soroptimists raise through SAVE goes to helping domestic abuse shelters in the greater Portland area:

  • Bradley-Angle House
  • Clackamas Women and Children’s Services
  • Domestic Violence Resource Center
  • Raphael House of Portland
  • The Salvation Army West Women’s and Children’s Shelter
  • Yolanda Program
