Welcome To Latina Safehouse!

The incidents of domestic violence against Hispanic women have continued to increase. In 2003, Sr. Alicia Cuaron saw a need for a safe place where non-English speaking Latinas, who were victims of domestic violence, could obtain assistance.  She called for a gathering of interested women and organizations to come together to help find a solution that would provide assistance in a safe and culturally relevant environment. Civic and religious leaders, as well as organizations, responded to the call for assistance and the foundation for the Latina Safehouse Initiative was laid.
