Domestic Violence

Mujeres’ Domestic Violence Program works to eliminate domestic violence and assists survivors to break the cycle of abuse in their families and in their lives. It provides comprehensive services to survivors and victims of domestic violence, from information and referrals to crisis intervention, legal advocacy, individual and group counseling to access to our 24 hour crisis hotline at 
(312) 738-5358.

Sexual Assault

Mujeres provides support for adult survivors of sexual violence, both Spanish and English speaking, at many stages in their recovery. Staff also work with significant others such as parents of children who have been sexually abused, partners or adult family members of survivors.

The goal of these services is to ensure that survivors of any form of sexual violence receive all the necessary support and to assure them that they are not alone. The Sexual Assault Program offers counseling, both individual and group, as well as medical advocacy, legal advocacy, community education, professional training and therapy

Empressarias del Futuro

Empresarias Del Futuro (EDF) is an educational training designed for women who want to initiate or expand a small business. 

This training provides particpants with leadership, financial literacy and entrepreneurship tools that support women in business and help them on the road to obtaining financial independence. Microloans and business plan development are available through program partners the Women’s Business Development Center and Accion Chicago. 

Community Engagement

The Community Engagement program mobilizes Mujeres participants and community members to become civically engaged around issues that impact them such as immigration, health, women’s rights, and gender violence. 

Through this project, we are able to identify community leaders, and build a base of volunteer and organization representatives. This program seeks to empower and support women and their families to organize and use their collective voice to advocate for lasting structural change that will benefit marginalized communities.

Parent Support / Supervised Visitation

The Parent Support program is for Spanish-speaking parents or guardians with at least one child between the ages of 0 to 17. Parents in this program will enhance their parenting skills and improve communication with their children. Parents, especially immigrants, will be welcomed into this community of support.

The Parent Support program is also for parents who are court or DCFS mandated to attend parent-training classes. Couples and single parents are welcome to participate.

Latina Leadership

The Latina Leadership Program facilitates women’s leadership development and community activism. The program helps women obtain tools to become leaders who can create positive change in the communities.

The 20-week program empowers participants to recognize their strengths and build their leadership abilities, assertiveness, and self-perceived skills as an agent of change. Discussions center around cultural factors that may represent challenges to personal development and how the political, social, governmental, and court system works.
