Mission

Enlace Comunitario transforms lives of individuals and their families experiencing domestic violence by working to decrease gender inequity and intimate partner violence in the Latino immigrant community in Central New Mexico. We accomplish this through transformative direct services, leadership development, preventative community education, outreach and policy advocacy in collaboration with community partners. Enlace envisions that Latino immigrants in New Mexico become a collective force that creates a community free of gender inequity, violence and injustice.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1) Domestic violence survivor clients and their children transform into individuals that are safe, can cope with trauma and have the resources to live a stable life.

2) Domestic violence survivor clients and their young adult children transform into leaders.

3) Immigrant community members internalize that women and men have to be treated equally and that they can choose not to be violent.

1) Providing direct services to victims and their children.

2) Building leadership capacity of former victims and their children.

3) Engaging newly trained leaders in anti-violence and gender equality education.

In line with EC policies, each staff member receives 40 hours of training on domestic violence and community resources before they even start seeing clients and every year thereafter. EC also provides 20 hours of training to staff and volunteers on a yearly basis that includes: 1) dynamics of battering, including its effects on women and children; 2) crisis intervention strategies including Safety Planning; 3) communication skills; 4) working with diverse populations; 5) the criminal legal system and legal protections available to victims; 6) child development; 7) confidentiality policies and protections; 8) substance abuse in relation to domestic violence; and 9) Immigration issues.

Enlace Comunitario (EC) has 20 years of experiencing providing DV services to thousands of Latino immigrants and has been recognized locally and nationally as a leader. EC’s staff is bilingual, bicultural, and highly trained to combine best practices used by programs who serve native English speakers, with an understanding of the experiences, fears, needs and hopes related to the immigration status and culture of EC clients. As noted, EC’s services include case management; individual, group and family counseling; legal advocacy and representation; life skills classes; transitional housing; prevention and leadership development.

In addition, EC participates in many state and national organizations to remain current on best practices for serving victims. Locally, we are a member of the statewide NMCADV and the Network to End Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence and EC sits on the Mayor's Task Force against DV and Sexual Assault. We are also members of the National Latino Network for Healthy Families. EC's executive director and other staff members also participate in community and professional organizations on a state and national level. These include: New Mexico Legislative Batterers Intervention Task Force, Mexican American Legal Defense in Education Fund, and the NM Death Panel Review, NMCADV - serving as Board members as well as on the Legislative Committee, and the Strategic Planning Task Force. Through the executive director's and other staff members' participation on these and other community and professional organizations, EC engages in significant policy change and advocacy for immigrant survivors of domestic violence.
