Mother’s Day is not just another holiday at La Casa de las Madres. Each year we celebrate the strength and resiliency of women and men who work to give their children safety, stability, and love. La Casa de las Madres — the House of the Mothers: a place that reminds us of the warmth, kindness, strength and resilience we attribute to the many mothers, protectors, cheerleaders and supporters that came before us.
In honor of the strong women and men who raised us up, kept us safe, and fought to give us all of the opportunity in the world, we recommit ourselves to supporting survivors of domestic violence. We recommit ourselves as partners in healing and safety, as advocates for opportunity and as a signal of hope in the community, reminding survivors of their strength and bravery.
Who in your life has acted as your refuge or been your support system when you needed them most? This Mother’s Day, honor your “rock” of support by making a contribution to La Casa de las Madres. With each contribution, we will mail your honoree a special Mother’s Day card. Give a gift, get a card!
Every contribution to La Casa is vital. The resources that our community shares with us fund safe beds to sleep in, comprehensive healing services, legal resources, and a pathway to a life free from abuse. Take a look at what your gift will do:
$25 = A meeting with one of La Casa’s expert advocates to devise a plan that keeps a mother and her children safe from abuse.
$50 = 10 survivors will be given access to one healing support group session led by one of La Casa’s expert advocates.
$100 = A day and night of safety, compassion, and comprehensive support services for a mother and child finding refuge from domestic violence at La Casa’s confidentially located shelter.
