Creating Safe Spaces
As the only comprehensive Atlanta-based organization serving Latino families impacted by domestic violence, Caminar Latino is embedded in the community to promote safety and support for families.
Our nationally recognized, culturally specific models and expertise uniquely position us to work with systems—child welfare, courts, shelters, coalitions, etc—to implement long lasting, systemic change.
The National Center to Advance Peace for Children, Youth and Families (NCAP) was created in response to the reality that involvement in the child welfare and child custody systems can cause irreparable harm to survivors of domestic violence, especially those from Black, Indigenous, and Latinx families. We believe our communities have the capacity to solve our own problems, and as a result, the NCAP is a partnership with Black and Indigenous communities and partners that include Ujima National Center on Domestic Violence in the African American Community, National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, the Alaska Native Women Resource Center, and Futures Without Violence.
“I do not have my mother or siblings here in this country but Caminar Latino makes me feel like I have family here. I am grateful for all of the support I have received for over a decade now.”
“I have learned to control my violent behavior. I remove myself from problems. I can detect them and diffuse them much more easily.”
“Well… I like coming here because is fun and there are a lot of children and they solve problems about your family and you feel better.”
