Welcome to the National Latin@ Network for Healthy Families and Communities, a project of Casa de Esperanza! We are the national institute on domestic violence focusing on Latin@ communities.  As a leading, national Latin@ organization, Casa de Esperanza puts community at the center of everything we do.  Founded in 1982 to provide emergency shelter for Latinas and other women and children experiencing domestic violence, today, we continue providing critical and innovative services and support in our Minnesota Twin Cities communities, ranging from family advocacy and shelter services to leadership development and community engagement opportunities for Latin@ youth, women and men, to informing the work of the National Latin@ Network to shape public policy, research, and best practices in the field. The National Latin@ Network provides training and consultations to practitioners and activists throughout the US, as well as in Latin America. We organize national and regional events. We engage in federal and state public policy advocacy and conduct research on issues that affect Latin@s in the US and abroad.

We produce practical publications and tools for the field, disseminate relevant, up-to-date information and facilitate an online learning community that supports practitioners, policy makers and researchers who are working to end domestic violence. The network currently consists of over 1,600 members and counting!

The National Latin@ Network delivers timely and relevant policy alerts, funding announcements and current research to members on a regular basis. The National Latin@ Network also seeks out input from members to inform policy advocacy efforts on key legislation impacting Latin@ families experiencing domestic violence. We encourage members to share stories of human rights violations, discrimination, community concerns and successes that will be brought to policy makers to help shape our laws. We are building a community where members can connect and learn from one another through trainings, conferences and online forums. We all have expertise to share.

Join us, or if you’re already a member, check out what’s new. There’s something for everyone.

We believe in the power of the Latin@ community to end domestic violence. We believe that we are stronger and more effective when we are connected to one another-sharing our successes and challenges and learning from our collective experience. Together we can mobilize Latinas and Latin@ communities to end domestic violence.

Casa de Esperanza believes that every Latina, her family and community deserve the best possible advocacy and supports. Healthy families and communities are created by their members, not by agencies, but organizations that serve Latinas can offer assistance and strategies that enhance and enrich their lives.

In order to do this, agencies and activists must be equipped with culturally-relevant information and tools that are grounded in the lived realities of Latinas. Approaches that work in other cultures might not necessarily work in Latin@ communities. Supports and advocacy must be informed by and tailored for the women, children and men who are accessing them.

The National Latin@ Network for Healthy Families and Communities offers trainings, mentoring, coaching, and consultations (also known as technical assistance) to help organizations and providers work effectively with Latinas and strengthen the fabric of their local communities and families. Our trainings are informed by more than thirty years of direct work with our local Latin@ communities and by our expanding national and international work. 

“Sharing what we do” is the best way to describe the National Latin@ Network's work with Latin@ groups. Our highly skilled team of facilitators and trainers –all Latin@s- will listen, collaborate and customize trainings and consultations to the specific needs of each organization and community. We cover a vast array of topics, from the nuts and bolts of how to run an agency to specialized training on working with immigrant Latinas and engaging Latin@ communities. For a list of topics of trainings and consultations that are available, please go to training topics.

The National Latin@ Network offers free trainings and consultations to any US-based Latin@ organization (whether their main focus is domestic violence or not), and any other organizations actively funded by the Family Violence Prevention Services Administration (US Department of Health and Human Services) or the Office on Violence Against Women (US Department of Justice). For a fee, we also offer trainings to any national or international organization.

We firmly believe that some of the best learning happens in peer-to-peer interactions, so we also facilitate relationship building. To that effect, the National Latin@ Network organizes regular national conferences, roundtables, encuentros and events across the United States, focusing on cutting-edge areas of practice, policy and research. Our staff frequently presents at local, state, regional, national and international conferences. We also offer bi-monthly free webinars–in Spanish and English- to provide advocates across the country with opportunities to learn about and discuss topics of interest.

For more information on upcoming events and webinars, please visit our calendar.

We believe that every Latina-serving agency should have access to first-rate training and consultations, so that all Latinas, their families and communities receive the advocacy and supports they deserve to lead full and fruitful lives.

For more information on trainings, consultations and events, please contact Paula Gomez-Stordy at or (508) 527-1817.

The Public Policy Initiative is one of the cornerstones of the National Latin@ Network for Healthy Families and Communities – a network of individuals and organizations interested in ending domestic violence and promoting the health and well-being of Latin@ communities. Casa de Esperanza’s Director of Public Policy, located in Washington, DC, oversees the Public Policy Initiative of the National Latin@ Network for Healthy Families and Communities.

Goals of the Public Policy Initiative

  • Improve policies that are responsive to the needs and realities of Latina survivors of domestic violence, as well as their children and families;
  • Improve access to financial resources for Latin@ community-based organizations in order to develop and enhance culturally and linguistically specific intervention services and prevention initiatives in Latin@ communities; and
  • Improve access to general prevention and intervention services for Latina survivors and their families, particularly for individuals with Limited English Proficiency and immigrant survivors.

What does the Public Policy Initiative do?

  1. Identify priority public policy concerns for Latin@ communities in efforts to end domestic violence and support healthy families and communities;
  2. Bring the voices and realities of Latina survivors and Latin@ communities to the table to influence and help shape national policy decisions;
  3. Support opportunities to access resources and increase capacity-building for Latin@ community-based organizations (CBOs) to provide domestic violence prevention and intervention services; and
  4. Build the capacity of Latin@ CBOs to take the lead on addressing sexual assault/domestic violence issues at the local, state, and national level, through the development of a network of Latin@ organizations, programs, and advocates, known as the National Latin@ Network for Healthy Families and Communities.
