Where will the money go? All store proceeds will stay local and directly return to LACASA Center to fund critical services for victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault from our community.

Will victims have access to shopping? Yes, victims will receive confidential gift-card vouchers so they may shop with dignity at no charge for the clothing and household items they need for themselves and their children. 

Where will you be located? 120 W. Highland, Suite 100, in Howell. We are in the Crossroads Town Center on Highland Road (M-59) at the corner of Michigan Ave. & Oak Grove Road. We are just a few stores down from Kroger.

Can I still donate items for the Crisis Shelter? Yes. Our needs for the crisis shelter are vastly different than our needs for the store. For shelter needs, please see our Wish List >> 

Why is LACASA opening a store? We are diligently working to create financial sustainability for the agency. LACASA Center is an independent nonprofit, meaning we do not receive support or funding from a national parent organization. All proceeds from special events and individual donations stay local and help vulnerable victims and their children right here at home. It is the belief of our Board of Directors that “safety has no price” and a victim never should be turned away because they cannot afford the protection, support and resources they need. All victim services at LACASA are provided at no charge. Proceeds generated from the LACASA Collection will enhance our ability to empower victims as they recover from trauma and rebuild their lives.
