The Los Ninõs Cuentan (LNC) Board of Directors selected Northwest Family Services to manage Casa Esperanza. LNC merged its domestic violence shelter over to the administration of Northwest Family Services in July 2018. 

Casa Esperanza, our shelter, is a respite for Latina victims of domestic violence and their minor children. This culturally specific, trauma-informed group home, located in Clackamas County, provides free, temporary housing, case coordination, and advocacy for women affected by domestic violence. Once women enter the shelter, they will work with their advocate to remove any barriers to service, receive recovery support, and develop a plan for their future including assistance as possible with housing, employment, and other needs.

Non-discrimination and equitable access

Pursuant to federal and state law, community-based advocacy programs receiving federal or state grant funding shall not discriminate, withhold services, or provide preferential treatment on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.

  Learn more about non-discrimination

Certain information shared between certified advocates and victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking is protected under Oregon state law. 

  Learn more about confidentiality

If you have had a negative experience with a shelter or advocacy program, we recommend speaking directly with that organization's executive director or other management personnel. 

If that fails to resolve the dispute, or you feel that the organization has treated you unfairly, you have the option of submitting a formal complaint to the Oregon Department of Human Services.

The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence provides training, research and other support to our member programs, in the interest of better serving survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking throughout the state. We do not have regulatory oversight or supervisory authority over our member programs.
