De Colores Shelter
The De Colores shelter opened its doors in 1986 out of community-identified need for a domestic violence shelter that would provide an environment that was culturally and linguistically appropriate for monolingual Spanish speaking survivors and their children. Over the year the shelter has grown and now provides an average of 500-600 survivors of sexual and domestic violence a safe and secure environment where they can seek assistance. On top of providing a safe place for survivors in crisis situations the shelter also provides case management, lay legal advocacy, as well as youth programs for all survivors staying in the shelter who wish to receive such services.
