LATINA SAFEHOUSE INITIATIVE

Latina SafeHouse

Se necesita un pueblo, it takes a village to end domestic violence.

1 in 3 latinas are victims of domestic violence.

Colorado’s Latinx population has been rapidly growing, inspiring Latina SafeHouse to grow as well. We believe that through bilingual and culturally sensitive services we can break the cycle of abuse, end survivor’s isolation and allow our women and children to heal and thrive.

Become a part of our force: As an advocate, you will provide trauma-informed, survivor-centered advocacy to women. Through safety, trust, choice, collaboration, and cultural responsiveness you will connect families with services and provide emergency support. Crisis line Advocates complete a volunteer application and interview and undergo a 40-hour community based domestic violence program to ensure they have the skills to help survivors succeed.

Trainings are completely online and provide for flexible schedules. Volunteers must commit to 4 (6-hour) shifts each month and commit for at least 3 months.

Helping with the crisis hotline also provides the opportunity for volunteering at our annual events including the Fuerza Latina Golf Tournament and Latinas Honoring Latinas annual Gala Event.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Latina SafeHouse is to provide bilingual and culturally sensitive services to Latina victims of domestic violence and their families.

Description

The incidents of domestic violence against Hispanic women have continued to increase. Recent federal legislation has opened new and safer avenues to immigration status who are victims of domestic violence, abuse is still a major issue for immigrant women.

It is recognized that immigrant women are at higher risk for domestic violence due to their immigration status. They face an increasingly difficult time escaping abuse. Immigrant women often feel trapped in abusive relationships because of the intimidation used by their abusers regarding immigration laws; often there significant language barriers, imposed social isolation, and lack of financial resources.

While we have come a long way in recognizing and addressing the needs of women victims of domestic violence as there still remains a massive gap between funding and call for adequate services. As more and more women search to escape from life threatening situations, it is imperative that we develop ways to meet their needs.

We hope to accomplish in this in a pioneering mission as we begin the process of healing and recovery. Addressing the two most important steps in recovery; by allowing women to break the silence (the first step in moving from abuse) and to know they are not alone (breaking the isolation). This organization will provide support to women who are moving from an abusive relationship should they decide to leave or stay.
