Dame La Mano (Give Me Your Hand) is a non-profit 501 © (3) organization in El Paso, Texas. The Center is funded by local businesses, churches of all denominations and individuals who have a heart to help the needy in our community. DameLaManoCrisisPregnancyCenterhas been serving teens, women and children in El Pasosince 1997. The center sprouted as a grassroots community based organization under it's founder and executive director Rosa Arellano.
Dame La Mano has met the needs of thousands of homeless women in crisis and their children with limited financial resources obtained mainly through internal fundraising and donations. The center works in close collaboration with social and health service organizations, local law enforcement, and others. There is a demonstrable need for an organization such as Dame La Mano as supported by the constant influx of referrals made to the center from organizations such as: El Paso Police Department,LifeManagementCenter, Mental Health and Mental retardation agency, Child Protective Services, local churches, and other community shelters for the homeless. A recent survey ofEl Paso's homeless population has uncovered a further need for transitional housing as the number of chronic homeless persons has continued to increase. The center has an excellent reputation in the community and has consistently placed the highest priority on meeting the needs of homeless women in crisis. Recent achievements include renovation of the center, the center's commercial kitchen and IT system. Funding has expanded to include a recent federal Health and Human Services grant as well as a successful fund raising dinner. It has expanded its volunteer staff to fulfill the needs of the services offered. In the past year the center has served approximately 75 women and 150 children but is desperate need of expansion because of high demand for services.
