Joining Us Is Making A Difference And Help Build A Community Of Peace!
Due to restrictions in response to the COVID -19 pandemic, the Su Casa Volunteer program has been paused out of an abundance of caution. We are hoping that we will be able to restart the program in 2021.
Su Casa empowers individuals and families to live free from domestic abuse and builds partnerships with communities to end domestic violence. Volunteers are essential to helping us meet the needs of the survivors who seek our services. Due to the nature of our work, we seek volunteers who can commit for at least one year of service.
