Our friends at the Latina Safehouse are seeking community support for their 2019 Awards Gala: Quinceañera Edition.
Latina SafeHouse is a nonprofit charity focused on addressing the domestic violence issues within the Hispanic community. Many of their survivors are undocumented. As you probably know, often their abusers use the threat of reporting them to ICE to have them deported as leverage to prevent the woman from seeking help or reporting their abuse.
The incidence of domestic violence in this community is 1 out of every 3 women are victims. As of June this year, Latina SafeHouse has supported over 150 woman and children which is as much as they served in all of 2018. So the problem is growing exponentially!
70% of their annual funding comes from 2 events: their annual gala and golf tournaments.
In addition to participating in the gala or golf tournament, you can also support LSH by:
– Selecting them as your chosen charity for the King Soopers community giving program (it’s tied to your King Soopers card and done online @ kingsoopers.com).
– Selecting them as your chosen charity for Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com)
– Mentioning them if you install a Sunrun solar system (LSH receives a $350 referral bonus).
– Setting up a one time or monthly gift in the Colorado Gives program (www.coloradogives.org).
