At LACASA Center, the spirit of diversity and inclusion is encouraged and infused into everything we engage in—from the community education programs we develop and the crisis shelter we operate, to the employee benefits/programs we offer and the social outreach initiatives we spearhead. It is our belief that opportunity, access, resources, and rewards should be available to, and for, the benefit of all.

Our nonprofit organization celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2021. We have a long history of providing life-saving and life-changing programs for victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault. Our independent, locally-based agency is the only organization of its kind in Michigan—and one of just a few in the nation—that provides comprehensive wrap-around services for all victims of abuse under one roof. This streamlines access to services for victims and their families, and helps reduce the trauma of seeking multiple services at separate agencies.

Since our organization was established in 1981, we have evolved to offer more than 30 programs and services that help empower victims of abuse as they rebuild their lives. If you are passionate about our mission, we invite you to explore a career with LACASA Center.
