Help us organize our donation store! We need monthly volunteers to upkeep our store for survivors of domestic violence. The store is meant to be a clean and safe space for survivors to get anything available for free. Currently we have not been able to upkeep with the amount of donations we have received and need your help! It is not fair to our clients to have to fish through a sea of clothing to find an item they need, and that’s where you come in!
Open to group sign ups (5-10 people), bring your agencies!
Every last Sunday of the month
*Note, we can accept volunteers who want to help organize during the week, just contact firstname.lastname@example.org*

NONE OF THESE TIMES WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP
The mission of the Latina SafeHouse is to provide bilingual and culturally sensitive services to Latina victims of domestic violence and their families.
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.
