Chicanos Por La Causa: De Colores Domestic Violence Shelter

Leading a Life Free of Violence

Issue Area: Human Services
Non-profit Status: 501(c)3
Website: http://cplc.org/
Mission:
The mission of De Colores is to provide a safe and secure environment where victims of domestic violence can recover from the devastating effects of abuse as they acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to become self-sufficient and break the cycle of violence. CPLC De Colores also provides community-based and follow up services to survivors and their children.
Specific Needs:
I work as a case manager for a domestic violence shelter in Phoeniz, AZ. Our budgeting is low and sometimes the clients' needs surpass what we have available at our shelter. Some of the needs we encounter frequently are female and baby/infant/child's clothing as well as plus size clothing for females. Shoes are also in high need. Accessories such as purses, belts, and scarves are often desired by the clients. Personal hygiene items, children's toys and games, art/craft supplies, and furniture are always welcome at our shelter. We appreciate your consideration and thank you, on behalf of the women served, for helping them create a better life for themselves and their children.
