Our legal, behavioral, housing, and other services empower our community to seek support and peace.

We're hosting our second virtual 40 hour DV training in Jan/Feb 2021! We’re open to volunteers and others who wish to be involved in their community. No prior experience is required, and all are encouraged to apply.

Our 8 day training provides an understanding of violence & trauma, advocacy, cultural competency, legal resources, and more. After training, you’ll be able to serve survivors in California directly and the certificate never expires.


We’ll meet for orientation on Friday January 22 nd 1-3pm. Training begins January 25 th 9am-5pm to February 10 th, M/W/F (we will NOT meet Tues/Thurs).


Training fees for volunteers are $75 with a commitment of 50 service hours. Community members pay $300 with no service commitment.

Currently, most volunteer opportunities are remote but we may consider reopening onsite opportunities when state guidelines reopen.

Mission Statement

Asian Women's Home, the domestic violence program of Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI), provides culturally and linguistically appropriate services to assist women and children in rebuilding violence-free lives for themselves.

In a county where 32% of the population is Asian, and as the only Asian domestic violence shelter-based program in our county, AACI Asian Women’s Home fills an obvious gap in services. We are proud to offer a range of linguistically and culturally sensitive services to victims of domestic violence, and we serve everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic backgrounds, and immigration status.

All services at AACI Asian Women’s Home are free and confidential, including:

  • A 12-bed emergency shelter
  • 24-hour crisis hotline (408-975-2739)
  • Case management/Safety Planning
  • Peer Counseling/Support Groups
  • Support in 16 languages and dialects (both Asian and non-Asian)
  • Legal, social services, and health advocacy and accompaniment
  • Emergency transportation and bus passes
  • Assistance with relocation, education, and employment, household establishment
  • Empowerment fund: small stipends for apartment safety deposits, legal bills, school fees, and other basic needs
  • Community outreach and education to service providers and immigrant communities
