This giving season, be the hope to the many Latinx survivors of domestic violence (DV) and/or sexual assault (SA) in our community.
En el 2020 M.i.A. obtuvo su primera subvención de la Group Health Foundation que permitió a la organización contratar a dos miembros del personal. Poco después de contratar a una directora ejecutiva y una coordinadora de programas, la pandemia golpeó y M.i.A. cambió sus prioridades y se asoció con otras organizaciones locales para ofrecer a la comunidad bancos de alimentos culturalmente sensibles y acceso a equipo de protección personal.
With survivors being asked to shelter in place, M.i.A. understood that abusers would use the economic downfall as an excuse to further their abuse at home. We then worked together with local partners to create a fund that would help undocumented families with emergency funds to cover their rents.
M.i.A. knew the need was even bigger than what that fund could cover so we focused on providing survivors with safe housing options by subcontracting with the YWCA Spokane and creating a housing program called Puerto Seguro (Safe Harbor). We can now offer survivors of DV with safe housing options and support them until they are able to do so on their own.
