Welcome to Northwest Family Life! Since 1989, Northwest Family Life’s network of faith based counselors has been characterized by a strong commitment to our mission of “assisting individuals and families in finding hope and healing when facing the pain of domestic violence, trafficking, trauma, and related issues.” As a non-profit learning and counseling center based in the greater Seattle area, we have a three-pronged approach to ending domestic violence: advocacy, intervention, and prevention. Northwest Family Life is a 501(c)3 organization. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual fall fundraiser. Together we raised over $200,000 to benefit individuals and families impacted by Domestic Violence, Human Trafficking, Trauma and related issues! Thank you for partnering with us to become a Beacon of Hope in our community.

Don’t worry if you missed out, you can still contribute to help us reach our year-end goal of $300,000, and become a Beacon of Hope today!

Congratulations, Dr. Nancy Murphy, winner of the 2022 Purple Ribbon Award for Lifetime Achievement!

Presented by Theresa’s Fund, the Purple Ribbon Awards are the first comprehensive awards program honoring the countless heroes of the domestic violence movement, including advocates, programs, shelters, survivors and members of the community support system. Winners were chosen across 28 categories, as judged by a national panel of respected professionals from the domestic violence field. We are so proud and honored to be a part of Dr. Nancy Murphy’s life work!
