About Bradley Angle

Bradley Angle’s mission is to serve all people affected by domestic violence. We do this by placing people experiencing—or at risk of—domestic violence at the center of our services and providing them with safety, education, empowerment, healing and hope.

Established in 1975, Bradley Angle was one of the first emergency shelters for women in the country, and the first shelter on the West Coast. Our name honors two women who lost their lives on the street, Sharon Bradley and Pam Angle. Bradley Angle was a grassroots organization founded by women who themselves needed safety and support. At the time, the organization’s founders were deeply concerned about violence against women and began the organization’s work by offering sanctuary to women escaping violent situations.

Today, Bradley Angle remains true to its original mission, offering essential services to survivors of domestic violence and their children. Our programs work to increase the safety of families and decrease the odds of repeating the cycle of violence. We achieve our mission by empowering adults to overcome financial, educational, employment, and health-related barriers. Our work also supports children by helping them plan for their own safety by recognizing and responding to signs of unhealthy relationships in their lives. We serve over 800 survivors and their children each year.

Our Programs

  • Emergency Shelter Programs provide up to 60 days of shelter for survivors of domestic violence and their children fleeing abusive situations.
  • Housing Assistance fosters financial independence and long-term stability through eviction prevention, rent assistance, skill-building and educational opportunities.
  • Youth and Family Support Services are designed to create a sense of safety, to assess and address trauma symptoms, and provide nurturing support to children of all ages. We provide supportive parenting education, family advocacy and child welfare advocacy.
  • Healing Roots Program offers culturally specific services for Black and African American survivors of domestic violence. Services includes advocacy, support for families, support groups, and assistance with basic needs.
  • Economic Empowerment Program offers financial education and economic empowerment tools such as match-savings accounts, IDAs, and credit repair to help survivors increase their financial self-sufficiency.
  • LGBTQ Program offers culturally specific services to LGBTQ survivors. In addition to advocacy, support groups, Healthy Relationships classes and assistance with basic needs, we train community groups about the impact of domestic violence for LGBTQ individuals.
  • Survivors Living with HIV Program is part of a national pilot project providing housing assistance and supportive services to survivors living with HIV.
