The Domestic Violence support group was established shortly after Latino Health Access opened its doors in 1993.

Our promotoras, who themselves were victims of domestic violence, provide a safe place for open dialogue where victims of domestic violence are able to get support and access to resources.

Due to the confidential nature of this program, if you would like more information or know someone who is a victim of domestic violence, please contact us at 714-542-7792 and ask for either Norma Cordero or Sarai Arpero.

For more information:
