ABOUT CRISALIDA

 

Domestic violence (DV) and intimate partner violence (IPV) is defined as intentional, targeted intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one person against another (adult to adult, adult to child, adolescent to adult).  DV/IPV includes physical violence, sexual violence, physical and psychological threats, stalking, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence/intimate partner violence varies dramatically from community to community, and state to state.

 

Did you know that in Colorado, 36.8% of our women experience IPV (intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner sexual violence and/or intimate partner stalking) at some point in their lives?  Did you know that men are increasingly and frequently subject to DV and IPV.  Fifteen percent of homicides in Colorado were committed by intimate partners.  One in four women in the United States have experienced some form of sexual coercion and victimization at some point in their lifetime?

 

NO adult or child – in Colorado – should live in fear of intimidation, abuse, and neglect. 

 

ALL persons of color and their children should have equitable access to resources and support so they can achieve health, wellness, safety, and functionality. 

 

Our communities thrive when our families are thriving and safe.  Men, women, seniors, children, adolescents and others will find Crisálida to be passionate, persistent, genuine, and empowering.

LATINO COALITION FOR COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP (LCCL)

 

The Latino Coalition for Community Leadership (LCCL) seeks out grassroots faith and community based organizations serving low-income youth and families. These providers are uniquely skilled to meet their community needs with a level of cultural sensitivity, understanding, and competence.

LCCL seeks funding to provide funding. As an intermediary organization we are in a position to access Federal, State, Philanthropic and Corporate funds we then re-grant to our sub-grantee partners to enhance and expand their services.

LCCL provides technical assistance, training, and capacity building. Following the leadership principle: “give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime”, all our sub-grantees are empowered in all aspects of organizational development for long-term sustainability.

Giving “voice to vision” is an important theme LCCL strives to serve our sub-grantees with, by helping them tell their stories on a larger platform to expose them to their community stakeholders, as well as funders at the Federal and State level.
