AWAKE is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization committed to helping women and children in abusive situations. We also work to empower women and girls. We are a community based volunteer organization devoted to the well being of South Asian Women in the United States of America. AWAKE has over 50 volunteers from different occupations and of varying ages. We offer our clients total privacy and confidentiality, with all services provided free of charge. AWAKE provides one-on-one, customized, personal help and hand-holding, sometimes spanning multiple years. AWAKE is not a part of other domestic violence or legal assistance organization, but can provide referrals, when needed.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
To build with local communities a society free of violence of South-East Asian woman and children, and to empower and to help them integrate into society.
A society where women and children live without fear, with dignity and respect, and as equals.
