Thirty years ago, La Casa de las Madres opened San Francisco’s first domestic violence shelter for women and their children. The once-quiet shelter has grown into the city’s leading voice for abused women, their children and teens—educating, promoting awareness and changing the community’s and the media’s perceptions about domestic violence and its victims. Through a broad service continuum, we also provide expert intervention and prevention services to more than 10,000 community members annually.
Our service continuum offers emergency residential shelter and community-based services to women, teens and their children while providing advocacy, counseling, family-based services and referrals, two 24 hour crisis phone lines, Drop-In Counseling Center, Teen Program, and Community Education and Outreach Program, while off-site we run the Emergency Shelter, Domestic Violence Response Team, Safe Havens Project, Mary Elizabeth Inn Case Management Program, and Safe Housing Project.
