(LAS CRUCES) -- Community members are coming together to help neighbors across the border in Cuidad Juarez.
Patricia Hernandez is volunteering to raise money for a place helping hundreds of women living in Cuidad Juarez.
“It gives women hope and a safe place to go that they know where they are, it doesn’t have to be that way,” she said.
Centro de Proteccion de Mujer a Mujer is a shelter for women dealing with domestic violence. The facility gives victims and their children a safe place to stay while providing much needed services in the area.
