Our organization, Casa de Paz, is looking for compassionate and caring individuals willing to share their time to help women and children. Volunteers are always welcomed because of the valuable contribution they make to any organization that supports survivors of domestic violence. We are seeking volunteers that will help us with our mission of creating a safe space for women and their families who have experienced domestic violence trauma. After training and a background check, volunteers will work directly with survivors by helping the residents navigate through their new experience of becoming independent. Volunteers will help to meet survivor’s needs and that of their children by: setting up medical/school/legal/housing/other appointments as needed/required, set up transportation, help with budgeting, computer training for job and housing searches, and any other services/resources that survivors may need and we can provide which will help them achieve their goal of transformation and empowerment to live a life free of violence. We are grateful for the time volunteers dedicate in support survivors and their children and we thank you for taking the time to read our volunteers opportunities.

Mission Statement

Casa de Paz/House of Peace ministers to and with Latina migrant women and children who have experienced trauma and violence, especially violence that displaces them from their homes. It provides a culturally sensitive, caring community and temporary home where healing and growth can take place. This mission is carried out through supportive relationships and a competent staff who have an understanding of multi-cultural issues as well as gender-based violence, and who respect the unique emotional, developmental, and spiritual nature of each person. At Casa de Paz, we promote the dignity and self-worth of all of our residents, striving to accompany them through a process of stabilization, growth and flourishing.

Description

Casa de Paz (House of Peace) Cincinnati aims to be the safe, transitional space of stability and transformation for eight immigrant women and their children in a respectful, culturally-sensitive community of intentionality that connects them to professional services and supports their growth along a continuum of self-sufficiency matrixes. In our first five years, we will establish a weekly support group for women recovering from trauma and violence and found a residential community where staff, interns and residents mutually commit to a six-month program of transformation. Casa de Paz provides a model for intentional living that supports recovery and growth after traumatizing circumstances.
