UNICA, the domestic and sexual violence branch of EPHC was developed in direct response to needs identified by the Latino community. UNICA’s goal is to provide support, advocacy, and opportunity for self-empowerment, enabling survivors to exercise free and informed life choices. Founded in 1992 in response to high community demand for culturally and linguistically specific domestic and sexual violence services, UNICA serves 1,500 survivors every year.
It is a program with a robust service portfolio including but not limited to crisis intervention and urgent response, human trafficking, support groups, mental health services, child and family services, out-stationed services, sexual assault services and primary prevention programming.
If you are experiencing domestic and/or sexual violence and are in need of urgent help, please contact our free Support Line 24/7 at 503.232.4448. Always free and confidential.
