Review for La Casa De Las Madres, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

La Casa de las Madres is an amazing organization that's working toward a future free from domestic violence (DV). The way they serve the Bay Area population currently affected by DV is inspiring. I have been impressed by the warmth, acceptance, understanding and unconditional support they bring to all direct service interactions. The staff is talented and sharp in responding to the spectrum of needs that survivors of DV come with. In addition to this on-the-ground support, La Casa is a strong advocate against DV, rallying around policies and effecting big change. We cannot do without them.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

La Casa's 40-hour volunteer training program taught me the complexities of DV and how to make a measurable difference. That will stay with me for life. Volunteering also connected me to other passionate individuals in the community.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Human. Humble, angry, sad, hopeful, empowered.

Role:  Volunteer & Volunteered at the emergency shelter.
