East Los Angeles Women’s Center

Founded in 1976 by women leaders in the East Los Angeles community, ELAWC serves as a leading voice for thousands of survivors of domestic and sexual violence. From our humble beginnings as the first in the nation bilingual hotline for Spanish–speaking survivors of sexual assault, today ELAWC provides an array of innovative and integrated culturally responsive services that build on a foundation of trauma informed, evidence-based services. Working in collaboration with individuals, groups, communities and our partners we strive to foster the implementation of policies and practices that support social justice and human rights.
