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.
Womankind’s Community Programs provides comprehensive direct services that support the recovery of survivors and their children from domestic violence (DV), human trafficking (HT), and sexual violence (SV). We engage communities and raise awareness on DV, HT, and SV, provide support via our 24-hour multilingual helpline, ensure all clients receive prompt and professional services, and provide therapeutic support that encourages self- sufficiency and empowerment.
Womankind’s legal department, launched in 2011, is an integral component of our work in helping survivors gain independence and self-sufficiency, thus reducing their vulnerability to abuse and exploitation. Combining client-centered and culturally-responsive lawyering with our holistic approach to client empowerment and advocacy, Womankind’s Legal Program has represented clients on various forms of immigration relief, including VAWA, BSW, U Visas, and T Visas. We now seek a staff attorney to expand our services to provide much-needed support around family law matters, including orders of protection, custody, visitation, child support, and uncontested divorces. We seek a compassionate, dedicated, team-oriented, and goal-oriented advocate to take a lead role in expanding our family law services.
