The mission of the Latina SafeHouse is to provide bilingual and culturally sensitive services to Latina victims of domestic violence and their families.
Our unique organization incorporates the knowledge of what the woman is experiencing and how to overcome this circumstance through understanding of the cultural aspects that may influence her staying in a situation that is damaging to her and her family. Speaking Spanish is the language which she is most comfortable communicating facilitates the trust and understanding of her experience.
Latina Safehouse (LSH) was founded in 2003 by Sr. Alicia Cuaron and other Latina leaders to support victims of domestic violence across the Denver Metro area with culturally and linguistically responsive behavioral health counseling, self-sufficiency, advocacy, and legal services. Initially LSH was staffed completely by volunteers providing direct services and fundraising to help sustain the organization.
