Bradley Angle House, located in Portland, Oregon, is the oldest domestic violence shelter on the West Coast. Founded in 1975 by a group of women[1], the organization is named for Sharon Bradley and Pam Angle, who died from the violence of living on the streets in Portland, Oregon.[1]

Bradley Angle was one of the first shelters in the country to be available to women experiencing abuse in same-sex relationships. Presently, it offers Oregon’s only culturally specific program for LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) survivors of abuse, and provides anti-oppressive support and advocacy for self-identified sexual minorities and gender-variant people.[2]

One of the values of the organization is: "We believe all people, regardless of race, age, gender identity, background, sexual orientation or religion, deserve to live in a world where physical, emotional, and sexual abuse are not tolerated."
