We support Guatemalan women and children that are victims of domestic abuse, physical violence, and/or sexual violence. We support the Guatemalan-run NGO, Nuevos Horizontes, which is one of only two domestic violence shelters in all of Guatemala. They accept women and their children that have been victims of violence for anywhere from 1 month up to 1 year. The shelter provides legal aid, counseling, medical attention, food and other basic necessities for the families. The shelter also accepts teen girls who have been removed by the court system from their families in cases of abuse or neglect. The teen girls stay at the shelter until they can be placed with alternative family members or else until they reach the legal age of 18.
