Domestic Violence

The mission of Monarch Services/Defensa de Mujeres is to end domestic violence and sexual assault by providing intervention and prevention services in a culturally-sensitive way. Through crisis counseling, safe shelter, legal assistance and advocacy, they help victims of domestic violence and sexual assault to become survivors and repair their lives. Monarch Services/Defensa de Mujeres also works to prevent domestic and sexual violence before it occurs by conducting workshops for families, neighborhood outreach, and programs for children that break the intergenerational cycle of violence.
