THE STORY:

Happy 30th Anniversary, NYAWC!

NYAWC turns 30 this year! Over the past three decades, NYAWC has served thousands of women and children who came to us for refuge, recovery and renewal from domestic violence and human trafficking. We have grown from a single answering machine to the largest pan-Asian domestic violence, human trafficking agency in the nation. Today, NYAWC assists and empowers 600+ survivors each year to be safe and thrive. Support from YOU and others enables NYAWC to continue providing crucial assistance to families and help them live violence free. Please donate $30 (or more!)
