Asian Women's Shelter brings new hope to survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking by centering the experiences, strengths and needs of marginalized communities who face cumulative barriers to accessing existing safety systems and services.  We provide comprehensive services, including a 24-hour multilingual crisis line, shelter program, emergency and transitional case management, Multilingual Access Model that makes services accessible in over 40 languages, and access to health, legal and economic services. At AWS, survivors and their children begin to heal and rebuild their lives.

Please join us! We need a wide network of resources and a community of activists and supporters. Together we can end violence and oppression in all of our communities. Read on in our Community Building section about strategies that help us reshape our communities, cultures, policies and world.
