About Asian Pacific Women's Center

8497a8a7865287abb758bf38b9ea844b72187b86

Asian Pacific Women's Center (APWC) is a non-profit organization that services Asian and Pacific Islander survivors of domestic violence and their families. Even though they specialize in Asian and Pacific Islanders by providing a multicultural and multilingual environment, APWC welcomes all survivors, regardless of their race or ethnicity, to receive our services. This organization truly services the community and they have two volunteer opportunities to share so that you can contribute to helping survivors of domestic violence and their families as well.
