About us

In 1984, a group of women and men from the community decided to found what is now Hogar Ruth due to the pressing need for protective shelter and support services for survivors of domestic violence. Since that year the organization has grown and adapted services to the needs of the women and the community we serve.


Promote the freedom, empowerment and independence of women, girls and boys, allowing them to distance themselves from gender violence, by offering comprehensive and quality services.


Promote Human Rights, and offer safe and supportive spaces for coexistence that save the lives of women, girls and boys.


  • We believe in the freedom of women to act in their lives and make decisions without being conditioned.

  • Empowerment: We work to develop

and transform the context of life that

allow women to regain power.

  • Dignity: We respect and defend the inalienable right to the dignity of each

human being.

  • Empathy: We have the institutional capacity to understand, respect and respond sensitively and effectively to the needs of each of our participants.

  • Diversity: As a team we work, promote and respect the individual and cultural differences inherent to each  

human being.

  • Justice: We act to promote the rights of all through dignified and fair treatment.
