Organization Narrative

Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violencehelps women looking to live free from fear and abuse, and can contact its advocates for culturally-specific services.

Its 24-hour hot-line is available for women who have questions, are in emergency situations and looking for a safe place to stay.

The uniqueness of our services comes from our ability to provide culturally- and linguistically-competent services to Asian women of diverse Asian cultures, recognizing both the specificity of each culture and the values and beliefs shared across diverse cultures.

A pool of volunteer translators increases our language capacity.  Since its inception, the Task Force has provided services, advocacy and outreach from 15 ethnic groups in 12 Asian languages.
