La Casa is a wonderful nonprofit to volunteer with. Volunteering for La Casa has to be one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Being able to help women who have been victims of domestic violence is so improtant and until our world understands that violence is not acceptable we absolutely need organizations like La Casa De Las Madres who provide support, services and a safe community to victims of violence!
La Case is an amazing organization that prioritizes the well-being of everyone involved - the women served, staff, and volunteers. The organization's approach empowers women in a culturally competent, loving way. It's an amazing organization to volunteer for!
La Casa is a wonderful organization! They help thousands of victims and their children every year, and engage the community in an ongoing dialogue about how to help victims and hold perpetrators accountable.
La Casa de Las Madres, not only cares for the population they serve but also very much so for their volunteers. They understand that we are doing this on top of our own jobs and lives and are flexible and accommodating. They also express often their appreciation for the work the volunteers do. A little appreciation goes a long way! It makes me want to serve more! I LOVE working wit La Casa and look forward to a long relationship with them! Thank you!
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.
Being a proud domestic violence survivor, it feels great to come full circle and give back through La Casa de las Madres! La Casa de las Madres offer a great 40 hour training & the staff really educate & prepare you for your volunteer work. But most of all, it's great that you can volunteer through them in different areas. I find great joy & satisfaction to be able to do crisis lines, office help, direct services at our shelter and/or outreach in the community. Reaching women over the phone, assisting them in person at the shelter & educating the community of our presence, services and about domestic violence is the greatest combination of volunteer work that I've ever experienced since 2010 til today. Myself, the community and victims of domestic violence who need help are beyond blessed to have a La Casa de las Madres doing the work they do!
La Casa de las Madres is a caring, genuine organization that always puts the needs of domestic violence survivors and their children first. They're always at the forefront of the fight to empower women and also take into consideration the needs and interests of their employees and volunteers. I absolutely LOVE contributing my time to this group of dynamic people and wouldn't hesitate to represent them and their cause.
I've been a volunteer at La Casa de las Madres for many years and am still today. La Casa is an exceptionally well managed non-profit with great employees and I am happy to do volunteer work there. I am especially happy to know my work helps them save money and that they will redirect it to helping others in need of their very special services.
La Casa rocks!!
I am presently a volunteer for La Casa de Las Madres. My experience has been great. Since the first time I visited La Casa de Las Madres, I felt welcomed and comfortable. Everyone that works there seems to be dedicated to the mission of supporting and empowering the women and children that need help with domestic violence issues. All the staff is very caring and actively working all the time to accomplish their mission in the community. I am fortunate to have been able to give some of my time to this organization.
I've volunteered for La Casa on several occasions. This is something that gives me great joy to know I'm making a difference for the women and children at La Casa. We've done a Walk-On to raise funds and open a Bright Space for the children and women that live onsite, I've volunteered at the Giants Game in SF to raise funds and awareness for La Casa and on their fundraiser events. This organization is so dedicated to help women that are in crisis.
My company voluiteers every holiday season.
I found this esecially rewarding.
We were so impressed we also took up donations for thier gift drive.
I volunteered with La Casa de Las Madres for an event and it was an amazing experience! This organization is truly dedicated to empowering women in the community of San Francisco and building a better foundation of charity and service to those who truly need it. I feel like they have a very positive reputation in this city because they are truly dedicated to their mission. This is a wonderful and inspirational organization!
I have volunteered for La Casa twice - Once, to assist with a resume writing work shop and the second time for their adopt-a-family program. I found the women involved in La Casa were strong, smart, independent women who made the most of every opportunity provided them. They were also a lot of fun to be around! Both experiences have been very rewarding for me and I plan to volunteer again!
I love La Casa de las Madres. They provide amazing support to women and families in need - especially those fleeing domestic violence.
Every year around the holidays, I 'adopt' a family or two and provide holiday presents to them, because no child anywhere in SF should go without presents on Christmas morning. When I drop my presents off at La Casa to be delivered to the families, the staff are always so thrilled and appreciative of this small effort I make. The reality is I am so thrilled and appreciative of the amazing things they do for these families. They're incredible.
