THE STORY:

I've been involved with the NYAWC for about 4 years.  I have been amazed how well this organization runs.  A testiment to this is the degree to which it's outgrown its name, providing services outside of NY in 13 States and outside of simply Asian women to fill the gap of a bad economy and a lack of resources.  

For Fengshui I chose to raise $3,333. I need all the good luck I can get.  The top fund raiser last year raised slightly over $10,000.  It would be amazing if any of my more "fortunate" friends could help me get there.... just throwing it out there :)...

If you prefer to mail donations, please send checks to: 

 

Nicole C. Kubon, MSW

Volunteer Coordinator/Development Associate

New York Asian Women's Center

32 Broadway, 10th Floor

New York, NY 10004

 

 

What various donations provide:

$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.

About the org:

NYAWC helps women (and their children) recover from domestic violence and human trafficking. As the largest pan-Asian agency in the nation serving domestic violence and human trafficking survivors, we provide comprehensive support services in over 12 languages. Ultimately, NYAWC shelters women from harm, teaches practical skills and gives back their self-respect and hope for the future.

NYAWC PROGRAMS ARE INNOVATIVE:  They are the ONLY organization that received a grant from NYC Mayor’s Office to serve human trafficking survivors.They tailor their services to meet the unique cultural, social, economic, and legal circumstances. Because it can be difficult to identify survivors, they train healthcare providers and other agencies to recognize signs of abuse and assist survivors.

Adolescents affected by abuse often act out or become reclusive. NYAWC provides digital art therapy and mentoring to help them express themselves constructively, open up and plan their bright futures.

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.
