I've been associated with La Casa de las Madres for over 3 years in the capacity of a volunteer and donor. I strongly believe the work they do is critical in eliminating domestic violence in our communities in San Francisco. Despite being a small organization with limited resources, it is incredible that they are able to provide 24/7 support to victims of domestic violence via hotline phone / text, and services including shelter, trauma counseling and legal support. It is beyond gut-wrenching to hear the stories of victims, women and children in our vicinity. The impact that the La Casa has on their lives is incredible and I am inspired by the commitment and tireless dedication of their staff. I am honored to be a part of their mission and hope to make a small difference in ending the cycle of domestic violence.
La Casa de las Madres is doing an outstanding job in their oh-so important demographic. The safety and shelter, along with the love and compassion and support for women and children is unparalleled. It is so clear how much heart this company has! I first learned of La Casa de las Madres when a drunk boyfriend got violent with me. He ended up getting arrested which was such a traumatic experience. They called the next day to check on me and I can’t tell you how comforting it was to know in that moment of crisis, I had people on my team who knew what I was going through. I have since partnered with La Casa in ways to help create awareness and raise funds for survivors. It feels so good to stand up and speak out with this organization and to potentially save someone’s life. I love La Casa de las Madres!
I volunteer with La Casa both in the shelter and helping to plan our annual fundraiser. Ever since I met the volunteer manager and learned about La Casa’s mission, I have been drawn to the organization. Staff members are compassionate and whip smart. Being a volunteer is incredibly rewarding, and the training I received in order to volunteer in client facing roles was second to none. Most importantly, the work La Casa does is meaningful, important, and life changing. And they do this work with care and a mindset of helping survivors. I couldn’t recommend La Casa more. My experiences with the organization have been some of the most meaningful of my life.
I've had the opportunity to work with La Casa de las Madres in the capacity of redHot Party host for the year 2019. Working with the charity has been an amazing experience, Kara helped guide her team of other superstar volunteers to another successful event that raised $150K+ to help in combating domestic violence in San Francisco.
I greatly look forward to continuing my volunteer and charity effort with Casa de las Madres and with Kara's team. Here's to the 2020 redHot Party!
I've been with La Casa for almost 3 years, and I love what I do. The services that we are able to provide to our clients are so necessary as they navigate this chapter of their lives when they often have no one to turn to. La Casa's advocates offer victims and survivors of DV, unconditional support, and an opportunity to take a breath and re-asses their situation.
I didn't know what I was getting myself into when it came to volunteering with La Casa and although I was at first nervous, it was one of the best experiences I've had when it comes to learning and becoming apart of the community. With the abundance of speakers and knowledgable staff, even though some days and nights were long, I still went home energised with everything that I learned. I not only learned about DV survivors, but I also realised a lot about myself and the relationships that I have with other people. Not to mention, I also learned how to listen more! It's a great experience that I would recommend to anyone that is looking to be apart of SF community.
I volunteer at La Casa de las Madres. The training required to work with clients is amazing and if you have the time I highly recommend it. Once I started volunteering I realized how much more I wanted and needed to learn. I feel like I am making a difference.
I love the work La Casa does in the community. Staff is knowledgeable, friendly and does hard work day-in and day-out. I feel lucky to be able to work at La Casa, and have really enjoyed all of the benefits and support they provide to staff, including PTO, ample sick time, tuition reimbursement AND 403b matching!!
La Casa provides critical services for women and children in need of shelter and support. Staff is dedicated and compassionate. Volunteers are kind, thoughtful and committed. La Casa's 42 years of service and commitment to serving those in needs is remarkable.
I recently completed a 40 Hr domestic violence advocacy training with La Casa and it was one of the most enlightening and engaging small-group learning experiences I've been through. La Casa is thorough, highly attuned to the specific issues that face the San Francisco Bay Area community, and extremely engaged. The community leaders they brought in to lead various parts of the training were equally passionate and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to volunteering with La Casa and am grateful for having been able to work and grow with them.
La casa has been great in providing shelter when my niece had no one to turn to. She's in the bay area away from her family and when she was faced with DV, she had no support from us. At the hospital she was referred to La Casa by her nurse and was accepted to the shelter program. Thank you for everything you do!
La Casa's life-saving services are needed in cities everywhere and we are lucky to have such a strong and compassionate organization in San Francisco. Leading the way for over 40 years, I am grateful to be a small part of a critical continuum of care.
I have been an employee at La Casa for almost 3 years. The work that is done throughout this organization is incredible. One of the best things about La Casa is that we are placed all over the city throughout different facilities. This allows us to meet survivors where they are currently rather than only being available in one location. We are able to meet and help more survivors this way.
The people who work here are passion about the work which makes it that much better. I am very proud to work for such an amazing organization.
La Casa does an amazing job teaching the community and changing public perceptions about domestic violence. I have learned so much about the pervasive and prevalent notions that continue to perpetuate violence in our society, how it is interwoven in so many aspects of daily life. La Casa taught me about restorative justice, how to talk to survivors, and what to do even within my family and community to address these difficult topics and challenge the conversation so people may be more aware of how to discuss handle discuss the deep issues within the microcosm of their family, friends, and community unit.
La casa is well-known in the community because of the work they do. La Casa's commitment to ensure safety and put an end to domestic violence, puts the organization at the forefront of the cause. La casa also employs advocates whom are passionate about the work they do.
La Casa does critical work for the community and ensures that all women and children have a safe place to go when they need it most. Staff is committed, volunteers are devoted and compassionate, and the survivors that seek their services are an inspiration to all of us.
From their caring staff and the full spectrum of resources that they provide to women and children, to their forward-thinking community education and outreach programs, this organization is taking the lead to empower survivors and end the cycle of domestic violence.
I've been a volunteer with La Casa de las Madres for years and am still overwhelmed but the compassion and energy exhibited by everyone involved with this organization. Their approach is multi-faceted- offering immediate and continued support to empower survivors of domestic violence, while continuously reaching out to the community with innovative methods to educate and prevent the cycle of violence. There is a tremendous need for these services in our community and La Casa's is commitment is commendable.
I completed domestic violence advocacy training at La Casa De Las Madres. The staff and training were great and helpful. Enjoyed training with great people.
I recently completed La Casa de las Madres' 40-hour Domestic Violence training offering an incredible amount of information for compassionate, conscientious, resource rich trauma informed care. I feel that I have taken away a great deal from those who came to speak to us about their work and was really quite deeply moved throughout the week. I would surely recommend this training and this organization to anyone seeking training or resources.
I have volunteered with Casa De Las Madres. They provide a very important service for the community with counseling and support, as well as the drop in center and shelter. They are also a strong voice and advocate for many who feel that they are unable to speak up. The staff and volunteers are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and supportive.
I volunteered on the event committee with La Casa — this is a group of extremely hard-working and dedicated people who are truly passionate about the mission of the organization. Not only do they provide a service for a real need in San Francisco, they have also become a strong, powerful voice in the community raising awareness about an issue that is too often put in the dark.
