CPAF is thankful for Bank of America’s partnership to help us meet the critical needs of the individuals and families we serve.
Leaders from Bank of America’s Asian Leadership Network – Southern California visited CPAF this summer as part of a continued partnership with the organization.
This summer, Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF) received a $10,000 economic mobility grant from Bank of America to sustain and enhance our services for low-income, homeless survivors of domestic and sexual violence. CPAF is thankful for Bank of America’s partnership to help us meet the critical needs of the individuals and families we serve. This support helps CPAF respond to the needs of survivors who have difficulty obtaining jobs due to limited English, or lack of résumé writing skills or community connections due to years of isolation and abuse:
• More than 1.4 million Asian and Pacific Islanders (APIs) reside in Los Angeles County. 1 out of 2 API immigrant women have been physically, sexually, and/or emotionally abused, and they are the least likely to report abuse or access services, facing multiple barriers.
• At CPAF, we help survivors increase their economic resources and establish safer homes for themselves and their children.
• Our staff and volunteers provide coaching for financial literacy, budgeting and job seeking in languages such as Mandarin, Korean and Vietnamese.
We look forward to partnering further with Bank of America to build healthy and safe communities and nurture change together.
CPAF is here to help those seeking refuge from domestic violence and sexual assault through our 24-hour confidential hotline: 1-800-339-3940. CPAF’s mission is to build healthy and safe communities by addressing the root causes and consequences of family violence and violence against women. CPAF is committed to meeting the specific cultural and language needs of Asian and Pacific Islander women and their children.
