Why donate to LAWA?

In the last 30 years, LAWA has been fighting to make sure that women who come to our organization in search of support do not become part of that tragic statistic.

While funding for refuges has drastically decreased, violence has not. Due to public cuts, several refuges have been forced to close their doors, causing a strong threat and putting the lives of women at risk. These women who are trying to free themselves from the patterns of violence, moving away from child molesters and sex offenders, have fewer and fewer safe places to go to. Migrant women face even a worse situation: vulnerability, poor handling of the English language, and ignorance of their rights in another country.

Our refuge is more than a roof; it’s a place of healing, hope, and new beginnings.
