More than a Shelter

Change a Life Today
Your gift stays local!

Did you know that LACASA Center is the only agency 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 farsighted approach makes it easier for victims and their children to receive the help they need. It enables them to build strong connections with their family’s counselors and advocates at one location. It also helps reduce the additional trauma and expense of traveling to multiple appointments at multiple agencies.

The LACASA model provides a continuum of care that makes good economic sense for the community, too. Administrative costs, operational expenses and victim services are not duplicated. That means every donation goes further to provide victims and survivors with the resources they need to rebuild their lives.

Our independent nonprofit is not affiliated with a national parent organization, which ensures that all contributions stay right here at home to help local victims and their families.

In 2021, we celebrate our 40th anniversary, a milestone that would not have been possible without the generous support of people like you.  Since we were first established forty years ago, our agency has grown to provide more than 30 critical programs for victims of child abuse and interpersonal violence.

Thank you for supporting our mission and making our community safer and stronger!

IN REMEMBRANCE: Make a Memorial Tribute

Memorial Tributes are a touching way to honor the life of a loved one. You may make a donation in the name of a special person at any time.

We would be pleased to arrange a personal meeting with you to discuss memorial naming opportunities.

We provide donation envelopes for:

  • Funeral Services

Corporate Matching

Ask your company if they match charitable contributions of employees.

Many corporations have matched giving programs in place, but research shows that companies often do not promote them and employees are not aware of them.

If your workplace matches charitable gifts, your donation will have twice the impact for local victims of abuse at LACASA Center

Support our Unique Boutique

Our upscale resale boutique, the LACASA Collection in Howell, offers three ways for you to help.

Shop. Donate. Volunteer.

All store proceeds directly fund services for victims of child abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault at LACASA Center.

The Collection also serves LACASA Center’s clients, who shop confidentially for their needs and the needs of their children at no charge.

Our Wish List offers a comprehensive list of items we need at LACASA Center. Our Giving Guidelines provide a list of what donations are gratefully accepted at the LACASA Collection.

Contact Us

Let us know if you want to start planning a donation drive for the center or the store. We can help by giving you some practical tips and publicizing your drive on our social media pages. We also can provide posters and donation boxes upon special request.

Photo Ops

We like to take a photo of your team when you deliver your donation. Let us know if you would like a photo taken and shared on our social media pages. We will work with you to schedule a time for your group to drop off the donation and pose for a photograph.
