24 Hour Hotline 562-402-4888

The 24-Hour Hotline provides callers with crisis intervention, safety assessment, and referrals to shelters and community agencies in English and Spanish. Callers in crisis are also able to call and receive confidential domestic violence support from one of our trained hotline representatives.

Emergency Shelter

The Emergency Shelter is a homelike facility where victims and children live for up to 30 days while receiving individual and group counseling, case management, legal and social advocacy, tutoring, art therapy, and children’s services. The shelter provides basic needs for residents at no cost. Trained advocates utilize Trauma Informed practices to work closely with victims and ensure optimum support is received. Victims have the opportunity to receive parenting education and domestic violence education support and learn essential life skills to prepare for the next step in their journey.

Transitional Shelter

Su Casa offers a comprehensive array of services to women, children, and families victimized by domestic violence. Our service continuum empowers and heals victims and improves their financial stability even as it works to eliminate DV through prevention and education. Through a trauma-informed lens, Su Casa tailors its interventions to meet the immediate needs of victims and their families while also equipping them to meet future challenges by providing life skills and vocational training, financial training and more. Families stay in the transitional shelter for 3-12 months while they participate in counseling, life skills, parenting classes, case management, financial literacy and budgeting, and job search assistance. Through the savings program, families save a portion of their monthly income, allowing them to amass sufficient funds to put a deposit down on an apartment of their own.

Community Housing

 Su Casa offers supportive housing services and short-term financial assistance to survivors to help them secure and/or maintain safe, stable and affordable housing as quickly as possible after victimization.  We recognize safe and secure housing as the foundational piece that provides stability and space for individuals and families to begin the healing process with dignity and respect.

Services include: 
Affordable Housing Navigation
Housing Stability Assistance
Landlord & Tenant Rights Education
Life Skills Coaching and Development 

Walk-in Center

The Walk-In Business Center is open during regular business hours and offers general domestic violence information and resources. In addition, anyone in crisis is able to walk in and receive services such as crisis counseling or assistance with finding shelter. In addition, victims can receive assistance with safety planning and the Safe-At-Home application process.

Children’s Program & Teen Program

When children arrive at Su Casa, they are enrolled in a local school so that there is no interruption in their education and social development. There is a children’s specialist who works with parents for their children’s counseling. Children also become involved in art therapy program, A Window Between Worlds, which helps children express emotions through art that may not be able to communicate verbally..
