THE STORY:


Bomi* is a Mongolian immigrant who escaped an abusive marriage with her two children. When she first came to KAN-WIN, she was scared and could only see a bleak future ahead. She was undocumented, could not speak English well, and had struggled to get by financially. With KAN-WIN's help, she applied for the U-Visa to gain a legal stay in the U.S. and work authorization. KAN-WIN provided rental assistance, intense case management and counseling. Within a few years, Bomi was able to obtain a full-time job, put her daughter through college, and begin contributing back as a mentor to other survivors. Bomi says, “When I compare myself now to five years ago, I am so much more confident, have lots of dreams, and became a happy mother.”  *Name changed to ensure confidentiality. 

KAN-WIN works to empower immigrant survivors of domestic violence to escape from abusive homes and establish safety and stability. KAN-WIN assists them through bilingual services for crisis intervention, counseling, legal advocacy, financial empowerment, and more. In addition, KAN-WIN also conducts community outreach and education about violence against women and children.
