Mission statement

Haseya works to ensure Native survivors of domestic and sexual violence have access to everything they need to live healthy, safe, and peaceful lives.

Brief description of services provided

Haseya Advocate Program is a Native woman-led organization that serves Indigenous survivors of domestic and sexual violence in the Colorado Springs, Colorado region. We empower Native survivors to overcome domestic and sexual violence by providing culturally sensitive and appropriate advocacy, including safety planning, access to information and resources, accompaniment, and problem solving.
