Dear visitor,

Effective January 1, 2015 SAWERA has merged with the Domestic Violence Resource Center (DVRC), located in Hillsboro, Oregon. Instead of being a stand-alone nonprofit, SAWERA will be a program of DVRC—a trusted organization with nearly forty years of experience in the domestic violence field.

All SAWERA services will continue to be provided through DVRC. If you need assistance with a DV situation, please call the DVRC helpline  Toll free: 1-866-469-8600, or (503)469-8620. If you have questions about volunteering, visit DVRC website at

Thank you!

The SAWERA Board of Directors
