LifeWire formerly Eastside Domestic Violence Program
Frequently Asked Questions

Why did Eastside Domestic Violence Program change its name?
Our name was long and often abbreviated and it didn't truly represent our services. For over thirty years LifeWire has provided safety, life-changing programs and supportive services to survivors throughout their individual journey to regain strength and courage. We chose the name LifeWire because it better represents our vital work, energy and the amazing progress we have made providing comprehensive and innovative services.

Has LifeWire changed its focus and what it will do?
Our mission and vision remain the same. We will continue to provide direct services and prevention services.

What does the logo mean?
The line art refers to the concept of a wire or "lifeline". Many domestic violence survivors experience twists and turns on their journey to a safe future. The shape is derived from the lotus flower, which is a symbol of triumph over adversity.
