Womankind works with survivors of gender-based violence to rise above trauma and build a path to recovery. The goal of the Community Programs is to provide comprehensive direct services that support the recovery of survivors and their children from domestic violence, sexual violence, and human trafficking across the lifespan in the communities they live.

Founded in 1982, Womankind is the first organization on the East Coast to address the issues of domestic violence in the Asian communities.
