If you feared for your life, where would you go?

LACASA Crisis Shelter

Things happen in life that we do not expect. That we do not deserve.

When someone in your life becomes violent, when you feel that your life is in jeopardy, when you fear for the safety of your children, our Crisis Shelter is here.

This is a secure setting for survivors of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault. We offer a non-violent environment for you, your children and your pets.

We provide shelter, food and basic essentials as you recover and heal. Our counselors and advocates offer every support possible as you begin to create a plan for your safety and well-being.

When our shelter is full, we must find a safe, temporary housing facility for our clients and their families. This is an expensive proposition, but we will not turn away a survivor who is in crisis and in need.

Your donation helps us pay for emergency accommodations when a family finds themselves homeless due to abuse and violence.
