Life & Work with Lorena Cacciatore

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lorena Cacciatore.

Hi Lorena, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Sanando Corazones was born in 2016 after seeing the need for advocates to compassionately help women and children trapped in domestic violence home situations and walk alongside them in their journey to physical and emotional healing.

Sanando Corazones is dedicated to serving women and children in Southern California through bilingual education, support groups, one-on-one counseling, court advocacy, case management, community outreach, and resources both in English and Spanish.

We strive for culture change in the low-economic and indigent populations offering support and compassion to victims of domestic violence and their children and women in other crisis situations.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
