THE STORY:

For the last almost 9 years, I have been doing work with this amazing organization that works incredibly hard and has tremendous passion for helping women and children survivors of violence. Thirty-three years ago, it started with a single hotline to pick up calls from Asian women faced with domestic violence and with no where to go, and today, our staff also serves survivors of human trafficking and sexual assault in the Asian community and beyond.

Through an innovative approach to counseling, community services, ESL and job training, art therapy for children, and residential services to name a few, NYAWC is committed to changing the lives of women and their children. The transformative work that our organization does helps these women and children heal and get back to a sense of normalcy, leaving behind fear and wielding new skills that our staff shares so that survivors can live independently and free from violence.

I need help from my community to help this community. But in fact, as I say this, I realize we are in fact just one community, where some of us have the ability to help others in dire need. As I have met our clients over the last several years, I have been floored at how much these women and children are just like us, despite the pain, uncertainty and fear they have had to endure. We are parents who want our children to be safe. We are children studying for the SATs. We are women and men who want our mothers and sisters to live free of violence. We are students of life who’ve experienced both fulfillment and hardship. And through it all, we are people who love.

So I am asking my friends and colleagues to help me help them. On October 6, we are celebrating 33 years of hard work and growth of the NYAWC at our anniversary Gala, and I would love to have you there. But if you can't be there, I also would welcome your kind contribution. Thank you for your support and compassion!
