I began volunteer training with La Casa de Las Madres in the fall of 2012, and the 40 hours of training was extremely empowering, informative, and heartbreaking. It really exposed me to all of the dimensions of domestic violence, and how best to discuss issues with victims, and treat all victims with respect and support. Since beginning volunteering with La Casa, I have worked on the Crisis Line, Emergency Shelter, in addition to Teen and general outreach into the community. The program is run by some amazing women, and I have never felt out of place. The many options provided by La Casa is amazing, and I am so proud to be a part of this organization. It has made me more aware of advocacy, and helped to shape the degree I am pursuing at University.
