The mission of the Latina SafeHouse is to provide bilingual and culturally sensitive
services to Latina victims of domestic violence and their families.
We have created an environment where victims and survivors can feel secure in themselves, and build authentic rapport with a person who shares their culture, to break every chain in an abusive relationship.
Our aim is to bridge the gap that exists for the most vulnerable in our society, including immigrants, refugees, homeless, transgender, and limited English proficient survivors. The services we offer are crucial to Spanish-speaking Latinas, especially those suffering added trauma due to facing unique, intersectional barriers and added forms of poly-victimization, including: heightened fear of deportation for themselves or family members, anti-immigrant sentiment, and oftentimes even separation from their children.
Culturally sensitive supportive services are crucial toward healing and independence.
We are here to remind our survivors: ústed no esta sola, you are not alone.
