Founded in 1988, Asian Women’s Shelter (AWS) is a dynamic non-profit organization dedicated to ending domestic violence and human trafficking and promoting the social, economic and political self-determination of women and all survivors of violence. AWS provides comprehensive programs and services in over forty languages through its “Direct Service” (DS) programs, including a 24-hour shelter program and crisis line, Multilingual Access Model, Queer Asian Women and Transgender Support Program, and Arab Women’s Services Program. AWS’s “Community Building” (CB) programs change values, practices, systems and policies through grassroots mobilization, systems reform, and inter-organizational community and capacity building. “Support of Communities and Services” (SOCS) programs empower community members and engage them as trained volunteers and multi-lingual, multi-cultural advocates and agents for change. AWS upholds all program areas with an organizational foundation comprised of 1) dedicated board, staff, volunteers, on-call language advocates and community members; 2) sound fiscal, personnel and administrative management; and 3) its Organizational Development (OD) work area.
