‘The victims are often right among us’

Nilda Valmores’ personal mission is to find victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking in the Sacramento area.

“The victims are often right among us, in plain sight,” says Nilda, executive director of My Sister’s House for the past 15 years, a Sacramento-based program that specializes in helping Asian, Pacific Islander and other underserved women and children escape their desperate situations. Through a 24-hour crisis line, safe shelters for women and children, legal and counseling services, and educational and work training, survivors can rebuild their lives in a culturally sensitive and family-oriented environment.
