Asian Women's Home, the Domestic Violence Program of AACI, is the only shelter-based program for Asian victims of domestic violence in the entire county. Our free and confidential services include a 24/7 crisis hotline (408) 975-2739, emergency shelter, peer counseling, legal, health and social service advocacy, walk-in support, safety planning, and community outreach and education.
While we focus on the Asian community, we serve everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, or economic status.
We cannot do this work without your help. Women and children in domestic violence situations may flee their home with nothing but their purse and the clothes on their back. Your donations provide for their basic needs and comfort, as they recover from the trauma of abuse.
Please note that all donations must be in good or excellent condition and are tax-deductible. Monetary donations, which are used to support services for domestic violence victims, are also welcome. If you would like to donate, contact us at (408) 975-2730 x226.
Thank you for considering to provide for the needs and comfort
of those who are less fortunate in our community!
