MIJAS Restaurant empowers survivors of domestic violence
MIJAS Restaurant is a social organization conceived by a group of Latina women wanting to help women in crisis of domestic violence. The majority of the women who founded MIJAS were themselves survivors of domestic violence and now want to help other women going through a similar situation by providing support, job training and a safe environment where they can be themselves.
MIJAS is a job training program for women that are struggling due to domestic violence reasons. Through working and learning new job skills and abilities, MIJAS is a space where women can become empowered and increase their self-esteem in order to provide for their families and, in turn, become self sufficient members of the community.
At MIJAS we strive to use fresh, local and organic ingredients whenever possible. Our seasonal menu changes four times a year to best use in-season produce from around the South Puget Sound and Washington State
MIJAS travelled to Washington DC with SafePlace in October 2010 to receive the Spirit of Advocacy Award from the National Network to End Domestic Violence
