Description
Su Casa provides emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence. They accept single men, single women, pregnant women, and their children of both genders and all ages. People with disabilities are accepted if they are ambulatory and can care for themselves. The emergency shelter is for 30 days. People are requested to take a leave of absence from their jobs during this time, and their children will attend a local school. Residents are expected to help with the daily chores and follow shelter rules and curfew. They provide clothing, food, and linens as needed.

Services include TRO assistance, individual counseling, group counseling, finding housing, financial assistance, and other services.

They have a transitional shelter for people who have finished the emergency program and it lasts six months. During the transitional program, adults can work and children can attend a public school. Residents must have a source of income and pay a security deposit which will be returned up on leaving, minus the cost of any repairs due to damage they caused. They are also placed on a budget to save 50% of their income. Savings are given to him or her up on leaving.

Their drop-in center offers general domestic violence information and resources. Anyone needing help can go and receive services such as counseling or assistance with finding shelter.

For anyone who wants to help, there are volunteer opportunities available.
