ELAWC strives to help women and their families find esperanza or hope in their lives, and empowers them to attain a better quality of life that is without violence and safe for themselves and their children. Using a holistic and trauma-informed approach, ELAWC delivers bilingual, culturally responsive services to over 30 communities. These programs are built on a foundation of best-practices including interdisciplinary evidence-based models. Our work incorporates individuals, groups, communities, and partnerships to end gender-based violence, homelessness due to violence, and to create interconnected programs to end the cycle of violence.

ELAWC builds healthier communities by working closely with our many community partners in health care, law enforcement, social services, public institutions, and others.

ELAWC does not discriminate on the basis of disability in employment or in the admission and access to its services, programs or activities. This policy applies to employees and members of the general public who access public services.
