We provide support to survivors of domestic violence.
La Casa de las Madres acts boldly to create a community where violence against women and children is not tolerated. We envision a society in which all individuals and families have equal access to basic resources and asset-building opportunities. We envision a future where safety and respect in intimate relationships are the norm .
To achieve this future, La Casa offers a continuum of comprehensive and empowering services to women, teens, and children exposed to and at risk of abuse. We provide access, tools and support—clinical and peer-based—that strengthen their ability to affect change and break the cycle of violence.
The link between mental illness and domestic violence does not break when an abusive relationship ends; rather, it poses a whole new set of challenges for survivors to combat in their journey to heal.
“I Ask,” the theme for this year’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month, seeks to normalize everyday conversations about consent and boundary-setting -- conversations that are essential to creating a culture where sexual violence and abuse of power in every form is not tolerated. To us, “I Ask” also has a second meaning.
