Womankind works with survivors of gender-based violence to rise above trauma and build a path to healing. We bring critical resources and deep cultural competency to help Asian communities find refuge, recovery, and renewal. We serve survivors of domestic violence, human trafficking, and sexual violence of all ages. We provide innovative healing services and award-winning assistance to individuals and families. Depending on circumstance, they have access to a safe place to live, assistance with housing, employment, English language training, legal immigration assistance, financial empowerment, and so much more.
Our goal is to provide support and guidance to survivors so that they can live their lives free of abuse. We believe this is achieved when they can gain harmony in their lives and a sense of belonging to a community. Through these gains, individuals can recover from trauma and pursue independent lives. For convenience and accessibility to our services, we provide services at 3 community offices located in or near Asian neighborhoods.
Survivors of domestic and sexual violence can find refuge, recovery and renewal at Womankind’s two emergency residences. We provide immediate safety to survivors and their children and work with them toward recovering from trauma. Our staff effectively offer support and assistance in accessing services and resources
