AACS's Family Support Program was created to address issues of violence in the Asian community through culturally competent services. Types of violence addressed by this program include: Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Human Trafficking, and Hate Crimes. Trained and bilingual staff and volunteers provide support and assistance to victims, helping them to understand their options and working with them on making important decisions. Our services include: Case Management, Referral Services, and Emotional Support.
Our goal is to raise awareness about domestic violence in the Asian community and to address the financial hardship that many victims of domestic violence experience. Because of this financial hardship, many victims of domestic abuse are unable to escape this very unfortunate situation. Your donation will provide the funding necessary to build up our Family Support Program which will allow for financial empowerment training to victims. By donating to our cause, you could help end this cycle of violence and abuse.
