Our Focus

Founded in 2015, CasaLuz is the first and only non-profit organization in the Memphis/Shelby County area that culturally and exclusively serves Hispanic/Latinx victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, stalking, harassment, and other violent crimes, including aggravated assault, aggravated robbery, kidnapping and more. 

We offer services and work with community partners and organizations to promote equal access to education, justice, advocacy, and other assistance. Our culturally specific services consider a client’s culture and beliefs and are performed in the client’s native language, which provides a clearer understanding and eliminates barriers to exercising rights.

Our bilingual/bicultural advocates educate, improve the quality of life of, and empower Hispanic/Latinx clients by providing legal advocacy and other support services; sharing information about the cycle and dynamics of violence; helping them to know and exercise their legal rights; and facilitating access and referrals to legal and social services in their native language (Spanish). CasaLuz provides services with integrity and respect. We are dedicated to preventing and reducing domestic violence and other violent crimes in the Hispanic/Latinx communities by providing advocacy, support, and resources.

We assist clients regardless of immigration status and strive to provide fair and equal access to justice for all.

Our holistic approach aims to promote healing, foster well-being, and help clients and their families live free of violence and fear.

All services are free and confidential.
