ATASK's Mission

To prevent domestic violence in Asian families and communities, and provide hope to survivors.

Since 1994, ATASK has operated New England’s only multilingual emergency shelter, advocacy services, outreach, and education programs for adult Asian survivors of domestic violence and their families. With its bilingual and bicultural advocates, an acute sensitivity to cultural issues, and expertise in serving and conducting outreach to Asian communities, ATASK successfully assists survivors in escaping violence and in creating safe, independent, and productive lives.

Our staff speak over 12 Asian languages and dialects, and have a deep cultural understanding of our service populations. ATASK’s services include:  emergency shelter; housing assistance with food, clothing, and transportation; support groups, parenting skills and ESOL classes; 24-hour multilingual helpline; advocacy, counseling and referrals related to legal aid, housing, healthcare, mental health, public benefits, employment, and immigration; and nationally-recognized teen domestic violence prevention and youth empowerment programs.

The majority of our clients reside in the Greater Boston and Greater Lowell areas, and 95% of families have incomes below the Federal Poverty Rate. ATASK provides emergency shelter program, and handles about 1000 Helpline calls every year.  ATASK also has a transitional housing program that secures homes for families to move from the shelter into independent living situations. Multilingual advocates assist clients with safety planning, housing, healthcare, public benefits, employment, immigration, and legal issues, as well as mental health referrals, financial literacy training, and other life skills, at our Boston and Lowell community-based sites. Educational workshops and trainings were conducted to hundreds of community members and service providers, including local law enforcement, as well as medical and dental professionals.

For families who are unsafe, helpless, and hopeless, ATASK offers a safe haven, help, and hope over fear.
