My company has chosen to sponsor NWCAVE because of their critical contribution to our community. This organization is focused, results oriented and relentless in their mission to end violence and exploitation against those who desperately need our help. We were most impressed with the dedication and acumen of the board. The skills they bring to the table from their "day jobs" are leveraged to make NWCAVE that much more powerful.

My experience with NWCAVE has been nothing but positive and inspiring. These community angels have a deep commitment in helping others in our community by empowering them with instruction, knowledge and awareness in a variety of ways. For example their workshops on how to spot someone being sex trafficked and knowing who to report it to so NWCAVE can swoop in and help the police. Or, their excellent self defense workshops. Or, the powerful key note speakers they have at their events. Every time you leave completely inspired. They do so much it would be hard to list them all.

KXRW Vancouver 99.9FM could not be happier to partner with such a worthy and wonderful organization as NWCAVE.

NWCAVE is dedicated to the community by way of several programs. I got to know it through Washington Says No More, a program with a mission to end domestic violence and sexual assault- which just recently saw State legislators support the bill to test the backlog of rape kits and shorten the time the kits are in the system before they are tested. Already; arrests are happening because of this testing.

This nonprofit does a variety of things. They put on a no more stomach against violence and exploitation of women. They are willing to travel around and share information about child sex trafficking. They have a no more missing children division.

NWCAVE is an incredible organization working to educate and inspire others to act around the atrocities of violence and exploitation. They are 100% volunteer run and they work nationally to change how we look at the issues of missing children, sexual assault, human trafficking, domestic violence, bullying, and hate crimes. They are experts in their field and are a great resource.

NWCAVE is one of the unique organizations that gets directly and intimately involved with those in need of help. There are no layers of management getting in the way delivering their life-changing services. Everyone involved cares and puts that passion into action.

Over the past several years, Michelle Bart and NWCAVE have been tremendous partners with the Vancouver Police Department in a variety of ways. From their effort to assist us in locating missing children, addressing domestic violence, sexual assault, or other related crimes against women, and as a member of the Chief's Diversity Advisory Team, NWCAVE has served our community immeasurably.

Michelle Bart works tirelessly to provide support to women who have been victimized or exploited. It is heartbreaking to think that in this modern nation there is a need for such work, but there is, and that need is critical. To hear just of few of the stories from women Michelle and her organization has helped will, or should, drive you to support her in her courageous work.

NWCAVE is THE source for the prevention of violence and exploitation. Their dream of a world without violence is not only real, everything they do embodies that mission. I've seen first hand the good work they're doing in the local community and on the National stage. NWCAVE is a core member of our community and deserves our support to continue their mission. I am proud to be a donor and supporter of NWCAVE.

NWCAVE was sounding the alarm about human trafficking long before anyone else. This hard working organization fights against this ever growing problem in our society. It not only educates people, it also strives to abolish violence and any and all types of exploitation. This is an exemplary organization.

NWCAVE put on a Human Trafficking Victims Advocate training that was absolutely fantastic. I learned so much and was so excited to be a part of that experience. Even though I wasn’t able to pay, living on a student income at the time, they gave me a scholarship to attend. Their organization is so dedicated and passionate about their work. As a now Masters level social worker, I will be taking that training into my professional life. I feel honored to know them and am so glad they work in our area!

I work for Elysian brewing and choose non profits to team up with to do local fundraisers at bars around Oregon. NWCAVE is one of my the most active, engaging, easy to communicate, great social media presence that I have worked with. It is an honor to work with Michelle and her team and I hope to see this non-profit continue to grow and see them do great work in the community!
