Bradley Angle’s 45-Year Impact

 

In 1975, a courageous group of women joined together for a radical but necessary mission: to provide safety, support, and resources to women in Portland experiencing domestic violence. In 1975, 2.1 million women across the country were being abused by their husbands and partners, but only a few domestic violence shelters existed to offer aid. The founders of Bradley Angle knew that not intervening would be detrimental to the women in the community, so they established an emergency shelter that was the first of its kind in Oregon and on the West coast. 

45 years later, 20 people are physically abused by an intimate partner every minute. That’s 10 million people every year. In 2018, an estimated 28,000 women were abused in Multnomah County alone. How does Bradley Angle currently address the needs of survivors in our community? We begin by recognizing that every survivor’s story is different and that multiple paths are needed for survivors to navigate their own journey of healing. That’s why we offer emergency shelter options, provide long and short term housing support, and teach survivors the financial and economic skills needed to thrive on their own. But concerns over stable housing and finances are only half the battle. Addressing survivors’ emotional needs play a significant role too.

For Bradley Angle, this means prioritizing culturally specific advocacy for the most marginalized and under-represented individuals in our community. Domestic violence uniquely affects Black, African-American, and LGBTQ+ survivors in a way that can only be understood through shared lived experiences. Survivors who belong to these communities not only have access to limited resources, but they also have to navigate a judicial and healthcare system built on racism and homophobia. That’s why Bradley Angle operates two dedicated culturally-specific programs led by members of both the Black/African-American, and LGBTQ+ communities. Every survivor, no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, or socio-economic background, deserves to live a life without violence. In 2019, Bradley Angle helped over 800 survivors in the Portland-metro area.

In the last 45 years, the nature of intimate partner violence and our awareness of it in our community has changed dramatically. Every day, Bradley Angle evolves to ensure that we are providing the best possible support for survivors in our care and that we are able to quickly respond to the newest challenges for survivors in Portland. We will continue to advocate for every survivor until loving, compassionate, and equitable relationships exist for all.
