THE STORY:

New York Asian Women's Center wrote -

Nearly 20 runners have taken on the challenge of running 26.2 miles and fundraising at least $2,500 each in support of the New York Asian Women’s Center’s life saving programs for women and children.

 

OUR SERVICES:

NYAWC helps women (and their children) recover from domestic violence and human trafficking. As the largest pan-Asian agency in the nation serving domestic violence and human trafficking survivors, we provide comprehensive support services in over 12 languages.

Ultimately, NYAWC shelters women from harm, teaches practical skills and gives back their self-respect and hope for the future.

 

NYAWC PROGRAMS ARE INNOVATIVE:

We are the ONLY organization that received a grant from NYC Mayor’s Office to serve human trafficking survivors.

Our services are tailored for Asian women's cultural, social, economic, and legal circumstances.

Because it can be difficult to identify survivors, we train healthcare providers and other agencies to recognize signs of abuse and assist survivors.

Adolescents affected by abuse often act out or become reclusive. NYAWC provides digital art therapy and mentoring to help them express themselves constructively, open up and plan their bright futures.

 

FOR EACH WOMAN OR FAMILY STAYING IN OUR EMERGENCY RESIDENCES, NEW YORK STATE PAYS ONLY 75% OF THE COST. WE SEEK OUT DONATIONS TO COVER THE REMAINING PORTION.

$50 can support a woman’s transportation costs for 10 visits with her counselor, lawyer, and social worker, and for job interviews and trainings.

$100 can pay for one week of counseling, case management services, and vocational assistance for a woman in our non-residential and continuing care program

$250 can pay for two weeks of services.

$500 can cover an average family’s costs beyond what the State pays for in a 5-day stay in our emergency residences.
