I've been volunteering at La Casa for the past 5 months and ever since I started I've always felt happy and excited to go and volunteer. I'm so happy that this association exists and helps so many adults and kids looking for a safe environment. Not only that, they provide additional activities to improve their way of leaving, like computer classes, financial and personal development classes, arts, etc. Giving hope to a lot of individuals and families to have a new beginning. I just feel so proud to be a member of this organization.
I completed the training for La Casa last September and I have been a volunteer ever since. The training for La Casa was life changing. I learned so much information that I will never forget. I believe the training would be useful for anyone to take, even those not planning on volunteering or working for a domestic violence shelter. Volunteering for La Casa has also been an amazing experience. I hope to always have a relationship with this organization so I can continue to support the community.
Since the very first day I started volunteering at La Casa the staff have been very warm and welcoming. La Casa truly stands for what they believe in. They believe in the importance of their clients, staff, and volunteers. La Casa is definitely a safe place to learn and grow. This has been the best non-profit organization I have volunteered at. I enjoyed the 40 hour DV training and have learned so much from this organization. I hope to stay active with La Casa for a very long time.
I just completed a 40 hour DV training at La Casa and it was informational, empowering and I cannot wait to begin my work as a volunteer for the organization! I am proud to soon be a part of an organization that advocates for survivors of abuse in such a humble and effective manner. I was inspired by many of the speakers, their strength and passion for this work is apparent and it was truly motivational. Looking forward to volunteering for La Casa, I am sure that it will be a wonderful experience.
After recently completing the 40 hour training course at La Casa, I am astounded at this program's capability. The training was incredibly intense, which is nothing less than the survivors of domestic violence, who seek resources from La Casa, deserve. I can't say enough about the people involved in facilitating this training. They were warm, friendly and both emotionally and intellectually nurturing. I never felt at any point that my contributions were any less valid than those of the teachers. In addition to being thorough, ideologically sound, and professional, the program expressed both the capacity for an effective learning environment and a vulnerability that implied desire for growth in keeping current and relevant to survivor's needs in consistently changing social justice movement. I will miss the women I was in the training with, we were a pretty bonded group at the end of the course. I would especially like to recognize Jaime Cox, a pretty spectacular activist and woman.
I have recently finished the 40 hour training to become a volunteer at La Casa. I am blown away by how extensive, and ultimately rewarding, the experience was. I learned so much about all of the different resources that are available surrounding DV, as well as a broad overview of the subejcy itself. I never expected to receive training/presentations from such a wide array of organizations. My interactions with La Casa staff thus far have been extremely friendly and inviting. I am touched by just how much La Casa does for the community. It is truly invested in the welfare of its clients.

This is one of the best volunteering experiences I have had. I strongly believe I have made a change to someone life. I will continue to help out in any way possible.
I was fortunate this summer to be an administrative volunteer at La Casa. All of the staff are very knowledgable, warm, and welcoming. I enjoyed all of the outreach events I participated in as a La Casa volunteer, including Sunday Streets events. I'm inspired by the work they do and will hopefully work for them again in the future!
I have been fortunate to be touched by the work of La Casa through my volunteer work with the organization. My office banded together to adopt a couple of families from La Casa for the holiday gift drive-- and that experience of helping to provide gifts for the La Casa families brought so much cohesion and spirit to our own holiday season. We have already committed to adopting even more families for next season. La Casa gives so much to the women and children that they serve, and they also provide many wonderful opportunities to the greater San Francisco community to engage in meaningful ways to the important issue of domestic violence.
