IMAGINE relocating from Asia to Massachusetts, and your dreams becoming shattered by domestic violence. IMAGINE having limited English, no stateside relatives, cultural stigma, and financial dependence on your abuser. Women who find ATASK’s helpline, shelter and programs find staff who speak 12+ Asian languages, respect who they are, understand where they came from, and help them envision where they can go.
IKEA-refurnished classrooms and common rooms in our community office and shelter would benefit ATASK’s women’s empowerment (life skills/ESOL classes, support groups, legal advocacy) and youth empowerment/teen dating violence prevention programs. ATASK IMAGINES peaceful homes and a world without violence.
