Mission Statement:

ASWAC is dedicated to preventing abuse, strengthening and supporting survivors by providing  trauma-informed coaching, survivor-centers, and empowerment-based services to all women and children.


  • Counseling  Services: ASWAC provides immediate safety planning, crisis intervention, and referrals. ASWAC also facilitates short and long-term therapeutic counseling and support groups for both women and children. It provides opportunities for survivors to process their experience with others who have faced similar situations.

  • Providing education and community outreach: ASWAC strives to provide high-quality education programs to community centers,  congregational meeting places, and schools to maximize public awareness about abuse. Informational brochures and flyers on abuse are distributed at community and school events and health centers. 

  • Medical advocacy: ASWAC nurse advocates are on call 24 hours a day to provide options and crisis counseling to survivors of abuse at our designated facility. ASWAC  nurse advocates also train other interdisciplinary team members including physicians and nurses, to screen individuals and recognize the signs of abuse. 

  • Housing Services: ASWAC offers  emergency shelters to women and children at proximate risk of physical abuse to help survivors relocate away from  abusive situations. ASWAC also facilitates supportive services including relocation assistance, case management of survivors, and comprehensive services.

  • Survivor Empowerment and Safety: ASWAC provides ways to improve the delivery of care to survivors through confidentiality and safety. In addition to advocacy, ASWAC works with individuals to develop safety planning and provide referrals for community and legal services.
