Haseya Advocate Program provides Native specific advocacy for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, & stalking in El Paso County. We provide safety planning, court accompaniment, civil & criminal justice advocacy, culturally specific events & educational groups, transitional housing, referrals for community resources, & intensive one-on-one support by striving to create a Sister Space for our program participants.
Evidence suggests a dire need to provide culturally aware & responsive services when addressing domestic violence & sexual assault. We are the only urban Indigenous organization providing these much needed services, which is even more critical considering there are 80K Indigenous people on the Front Range. Our vision is that every Indigenous women be treated with respect, honored as a sacred being & have a safe & peaceful life.
Funding for short term emergency housing, transportation assistance, legal & documentation fees, childcare costs, funds for the Indigenous Healing Garden, & cultural events. All donations stay local!
More than 4 out of 5 Native women have experienced violence in their lifetime & 92% of that abuse is at the hands of a non Native perpetrator.
