Transitioning Away from Abuse

Moving forward & rebuilding lives

LACASA’s New Transitions Housing Program is available for abuse survivors and their children who meet eligibility requirements.

We provide off-site housing units where survivors can transition away from an abusive situation and into a new way of life.

Our New Transitions Housing coordinator provides support and resources for survivors as they move toward independence.

Abuse survivors may apply for this 2-year program which enables survivor-families a time to heal and regain financial stability.

Our families in transition have financial challenges, especially when it comes to transportation issues. Your donation today could provide much-needed gas cards, bus tokens, car repairs, or emergency roadside assistance cards for single-parent families in need.
