Our philosophy is that every Individual has the right to live free from the threat of violence
OVER 40 YEARS OF PROTECTING FAMILIES FROM DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
The agency was founded in 1979 by Petra Medelez, a survivor, who out of her own home took crisis calls and housed victims and their children. Su Casa remains dedicated to Petra’s belief that every individual has the right to live free from violence or the threat of violence.
Our SERVICES & PROGRAMS provide long term help
Our primary purpose is to protect families from the immediate danger stemming from domestic violence and to break the inter-generational cycle of abuse. All of our programs are designed with this purpose in mind. We help victims learn how to have safe, healthy relationships and how to remain safe when they leave the shelter.
Building A community of peace with your support
Su Casa empowers individuals and families to live free from domestic abuse and builds partnerships with communities to end domestic violence. Volunteering or donating will help us meet the needs of the survivors who seek our service. With your support, Su Casa will always be there for those who need us.
