We believe that every Latin@-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.

Casa de Esperanza has provided training and support and for scores of organizations—in Minnesota, nationally and internationally—that wish to enhance their services to Latinas and their families. We’ve partnered with:

  • Latin@ domestic violence organizations
  • Domestic violence organizations who want to provide culturally welcoming services to Latinas
  • Other organizations and systems that serve Latin@ families who have experienced domestic violence or are facing other critical life issues.

We tailor our offerings to each organization, collaborating to identify what will be most helpful: one-on-one consultation, mentoring, coaching, training or site visits.

Training for Latin@ Domestic Violence Organizations

“Sharing what we do” is the best way to describe Casa de Esperanza’s work with Latin@ groups. We listen and collaborate to determine together how Casa de Esperanza can serve each organization best.
Topics have included:

  • Casa de Esperanza’s Latina Advocacy Framework
  • Understanding Domestic Violence
  • Latin@ Families and Domestic Violence
  • Working with Immigrant Latinas
  • Children and Domestic Violence
  • Community Engagement
  • Leadership Development for Latinas
  • Leadership Development for Latina Youth & Peer Education
  • Organizational Development
  • Fund Development and Grant Writing
  • Budgeting
  • Communications and Marketing
  • Evaluation
  • Strategic Planning
  • Social media for non-profits: platforms, organizing campaigns, and measuring impact. 

The best learning happens through connections, so we facilitate relationship building. Encuentros (gatherings) bring Latino organizations together for face-to-face training opportunities. Monthly audio conference calls provide advocates across the country with opportunities to discuss topics of interest.

Training for Organizations Serving Latin@s
Our training staff—all Latinas—has decades of experience in Latin@ organizations, the nonprofit sector, domestic violence and sexual assault, children and child abuse, government, law, education and community activism. Our knowledge and capacity is broad, ranging from cultural competency to program development and policy, from the day-to-day workings of an organization to philosophy and theory.

How do we work with organizations? What is our process?

  • We listen and collaborate.
  • We don’t apply a prescribed “model.” We believe that everyone brings expertise to the table. We seek to create solutions that are relevant and meaningful for your organization, so we collaborate with you to assess your organization’s needs and determine the best vehicles for training and support.
  • We use Casa de Esperanza’s tools, when appropriate, to support our Technical Assistance:
    • An assessment tool, to assist you in measuring your organization’s readiness to serve Latin@ communities
    • Casa de Esperanza’s Acculturation Continuum, an excellent aid in understanding the range of biculturalism, assimilation and acculturation that are experienced by immigrants of any culture
    • Latino Families and Domestic Violence, a manual for staff that are serving Latino families where there may be domestic violence
    • Stepping into Latino Realities, a film for case workers and other staff that work in Latin@ communities

What groups benefit from our training?

  • Nonprofit organizations
  • Law enforcement professionals
  • Child protection agencies
  • Courts
  • Government centers
  • County and other government systems
  • Domestic violence organizations

What topics do we offer? This list provides a sample of topics; others are available, based on our dialogue with the organization.

  • Stepping into Latin@ Realities
  • Assessment of an Organization’s Capacity to Serve Latin@s
  • Latin@ Families and Domestic Violence
  • Understanding Domestic Violence
  • Working with Immigrant Latinas
  • Children and Domestic Violence
  • Community Engagement
  • Building Latina Leadership in Latin@ Communities
  • Peer Education for Youth

The Increasing Language Access in the Courts toolkit:

  • examines advocates’ observations about the court experiences of survivors with limited English proficiency, and
  • offers guidance and resources to build systems change efforts for language accessibility.

In 2013, we conducted a nationwide assessment of court-based language accessibility for survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Nearly 600 people responded, most of whom worked for community-based sexual and domestic violence programs. We learned that interpretation and translation services for civil matters and filing court documents are available about half the time for Spanish speakers, and about one quarter of the time for people who speak languages (other than Spanish) that are common in the community. The first section of the toolkit,Assessment of English Language access for Survivors, summarizes assessment results, including the known consequences of limited language access services for survivors.

In the interest of supporting advocates’ role in building court access for survivors, the second part of the toolkit, How to Improve Language Access for Survivors, offers concrete information and tools for advocates seeking to increase language accessibility:

  • Before court” resources include a pre-court checklist and clear and simple descriptions of the federal laws and guidelines that frame courts’ obligations to provide quality language access services.
  • At court” resources include talking points and strategies for in-court individual advocacy
  • After court” resources include a training curriculum for use with court personnel and a step-by-step guide for planning systems change advocacy.
