The mission of Monarch Services/Defensa de Mujeres is to end domestic
violence and sexual assault by providing intervention and prevention
services in a culturally-sensitive way. Through crisis counseling, safe
shelter, legal assistance and advocacy, they help victims of domestic
violence and sexual assault to become survivors and repair their lives.
Monarch Services/Defensa de Mujeres also works to prevent domestic
and sexual violence before it occurs by conducting workshops for
families, neighborhood outreach, and programs for children that break
the intergenerational cycle of violence.
