High Risk Team

The High Risk team is a partnership between La Casa, the San Francisco Department on the Status of Women, the SFPD, SF District Attorney, and other community-based organizations

Through this program, a La Casa advocate works with emergency first-responders to support individuals that have been identified as at high-risk of a lethal domestic violence situation, following a police response to a family violence 9-1-1 call. The SFPD’s Bayview Station connects all at-risk survivors with our advocate, who can provide support services over the phone as well as locally, and act as a conduit through which the individual can access additional La Casa programming such as our shelter, support groups, and therapy.
