Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence
The Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence, Inc. is a coalition of individuals and organizations which aims to eliminate family violence and to strengthen Asian families and communities. Through their residential and non-residential services, the Asian Shelter and Advocacy Project (ASAP) provides emergency shelter and multilingual services to Asian families experiencing harassment, coercion, physical or sexual abuse. Believing that all individuals have the right to live independent, violence-free lives, the purpose of the shelter is to provide Asian women and their children with the safety space and opportunity to lead such lives. ASCAP's service model is based on a philosophy of empowerment for Asian women and their children. Thus, all shelter services will be guided by the principle of respect for Asian women.
