Asian Women's Shelter brings new hope to survivors of domestic
violence and human trafficking by centering the experiences,
strengths and needs of marginalized communities who face cumulative
barriers to accessing existing safety systems and services.
We provide comprehensive services, including a 24-hour multilingual
crisis line, shelter program, emergency and transitional case
management, Multilingual Access Model that makes services
accessible in over 40 languages, and access to health, legal and
economic services. At AWS, survivors and their children begin to
heal and rebuild their lives.
Please join us! We need a wide network of resources and a
community of activists and supporters. Together we can end violence
and oppression in all of our communities. Read on in our Community
Building section about strategies that help us reshape
our communities, cultures, policies and world.
