In December, the Nextep Charitable Foundation donated $10,000 to La Luz OKC, which supports members of the Latino community who experience domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
“We provide victims with an option that feels safe and comforting because it incorporates Hispanic culture, values, and upbringing. It is a place where our clients feel a real sense of belonging.” – La Luz
Established in 2017, the organization works to be a light on the survivors’ paths to independence and eliminate “machismo” in the community. The organization offers free community education for domestic violence awareness, empowers survivors to flourish with survivor-led support groups, and advocates for holding offenders accountable. La Luz provides free support and assistance in filing police reports, a 24-hour helpline in Spanish, court support, and more!
“The Nextep Charitable Foundation is proud to support La Luz,” said Brian Fayak, Nextep founder and CEO. “We want to partner with organizations that are doing positive work in the community and uplifting those who need it most — La Luz is doing just that.”
