The New York Asian Women’s Center (NYAWC) is the largest Asian American focused domestic violence agency in the country, a premier human trafficking service organization, and a national demonstration project that provides model services to survivors of sexual assault.
NYAWC’s Hotline is a vital service helping women and children overcome domestic abuse and empowering them to govern their own lives. Hotline volunteers are compassionate individuals who maintain and operate the Center’s Hotline and are often the first point of contact for new clients. Hotline volunteers provide information and referrals, safety planning, and emotional support individuals who call our hotline. Proficiency in an language other than English is very helpful (particularly Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Korean, Punjabi, Gujrati, Bengali, Burmese, Spanish, and Thai) but not required.
