In times like these, vulnerable victims of abuse need our protection and support more than ever.
Your contribution provides warm beds, hot meals, and a safe place for victims and their children to live as they escape physical violence and emotional trauma.
We never close, because the needs of abuse victims don't disappear during a pandemic; in fact, they increase significantly.
The programs and services we continue to operate around the clock include our Crisis Shelter, 24-hour Helpline, Child Abuse Response Effort (CARE), Sexual Assault Response Center, client counseling, and legal advocacy.
In order to ensure the health and safety of our residents, clients and staff, we have temporarily ceased donation drop-offs at our facility. This leaves us in need of critical essentials and basic supplies--from food for infants, children and adults, to cleaning and sanitizing products that mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Your gift today will make a life-saving difference "within these walls" and beyond.
Thank you for remembering victims from our community during this unprecedented global crisis. Your generosity is appreciated beyond measure.Warm regards,
Chair, LACASA Board of Directors
