Emergency Shelter

The Emergency Shelter consists of safe housing, nutritious meals, safety, counseling, education, transportation assistance, empowerment and support for survivors of domestic violence and their children.

To access La Casa, Inc. services, the first step is to complete a service assessment. You may do so by phone, online or in person. An advocate will discuss your safety and goals and decide (with you) whether or not our services are the most appropriate. If we are not the best answer, we will help you identify the best services for you and your children.

In person, we accept walk-ins in our Anthony or Las Cruces office Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. Outside of these hours and/or on weekends, please call us at 575-526-9513.

La Casa, Inc. has a broad range of services available to survivors of domestic violence. We welcome ALL survivors of domestic violence. La Casa, Inc. does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, mental or physical ability, citizenship, or primary language.

Survivors are expected to treat staff and each other with the utmost respect.

The Emergency Shelter is a judgment-free safe space. The Emergency Shelter is the place to pause, reflect and get back on track. In Shelter, we work on safety, workforce skills, financial goals, computer literacy, basic life skills, parenting and more. Services are strength-based.

If you are experiencing domestic violence, it is very likely that you are scared and overwhelmed. You may not know you have any options but to stay and endure the abuse. You may be blaming yourself for causing the abuse. If you have children, you worry about their safety and emotional well-being on top of everything else you have to deal with. Please know that YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS ALONE. WE want to HELP. You do not have to come into shelter to be supported. Many domestic violence survivors are fortunate to have trusted family, friends, co-workers, or their church/faith community to turn to for support. For others, that is not an option. La Casa is here to help! At the very least, talk to someone you trust. Our crisis line is available 24 hours a day just for you. If you simply need to talk, learn about domestic violence, find out your options, or if you need shelter, please call us at (575) 526-2819. You can call anonymously. Our friendly and caring advocates are waiting for your call. If you are in immediate danger, call 911!
