THE STORY:

New York Asian Women's Center wrote -

The New York Asian Women's Center (NYAWC) has recruited 20 runners to participate in the ING NYC Marathon on November 6, 2011. These runners have taken on the challenge of running 26.2 miles and fundraising at least $2,500 in support our life saving programs.

 

OUR SERVICES:

NYAWC helps women (and their children) recover from domestic violence and human trafficking. Our services are tailored to Asian women's cultural, social, economic, and legal circumstances. We offer shelter, counseling, legal assistance, children and teenage programs, assistance with obtaining education, housing, and work. Ultimately, NYAWC shelters women from harm, teaches practical skills and gives back their self-respect and hope for the future.

Our multilingual hotline provides assistance in more than 12 languages. As the largest Pan-Asian domestic violence and anti-human trafficking agency in the country, NYAWC helps over 600 women and children a year.

 

NYAWC PROGRAMS ARE INNOVATIVE:

  • We are the only organization that received funding from the Mayor’s Office to serve human trafficking survivors.
  • We work with a local healthcare provider to better identify and serve Asian domestic violence survivors.
  • Our digital art therapy program uses modern technology to engage and assist teens.

 

FOR EACH WOMAN OR FAMILY STAYING IN OUR EMERGENCY RESIDENCES, NEW YORK STATE PAYS ONLY 75% OF THE COST. WE SEEK OUT DONATIONS TO COVER THE REMAINING PORTION.

  • $50 can support a woman’s transportation costs for 10 visits with her counselor, lawyer, and social worker, and for job interviews and trainings.
  • $100 can pay for one week of counseling, case management services, and vocational assistance for a woman in our non-residential and continuing care program
  • $250 can pay for two weeks of services.
  • $500 can cover an average family’s costs beyond what the State pays for in a 5-day stay in our emergency residences.
