Asian Women’s Shelter

The mission of Asian Women’s Shelter (AWS) is to eliminate domestic violence by promoting the social, economic and political self-determination of women. AWS is committed to every person’s right to live in a violence-free home, and has a specific focus towards addressing the cultural and language needs of immigrant, refugee, and U.S.-born Asian women and their children. This perspective is reflected in the organization’s broad strategy, which integrates culturally competent and language-accessible shelter services, educational programs, and community-based advocacy.
