Salsa For A Girl is a fundraiser event for Casa Aliento. Casa Aliento was created to give women and people who identify as female an option for better living. We are a 501c3 agency in the state of New Mexico. Casa Aliento is a faith-based independent, transitional living program that focuses on restoring women’s hearts in the aftercare of their traumatic experiences. Through different case management methods and advocacy, we help give women from all over New Mexico and Mexico and soon in Guatemala, the chance to reach true freedom from life-controlling situations – such as being victims of human trafficking, sex trafficking, sex work, substance abuse, sexual assault, and rape. Our services are free of charge to the client and completely funded by donors, ministries, fundraisers, and businesses.
