If you are experiencing domestic violence, you may be scared and overwhelmed. You may not believe that you have any choice but to stay and endure the abuse. You may be blaming yourself for somehow causing the abuse. If you have children, you may be worried about their safety and emotional well-being on top of everything else you have to deal with.
You don’t have to go through this alone. There are people who can help you. Some domestic violence survivors are lucky to have family or friends, co-workers, or their church/faith community to turn to for support. Other individuals are not. Anyone can turn to La Casa for help, anytime. Our crisis line is available 24-7. If you need to just talk, get information about domestic violence, learn your options, or in need of shelter, please call us at (575) 526-2819. You can call anonymously.
