Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF) received a $20,000 general operating grant from Cathay Bank to enhance CPAF’s economic empowerment services for low-income, homeless survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Nearly all (90%) of the survivors at CPAF’s shelters are low- to moderate- income and have experienced economic abuse and isolation. CPAF’s economic empowerment activities are offered to all shelter clients and include: coaching on budgeting and financial planning, increasing resources through employment and public benefits, and assistance with locating permanent housing so survivors can establish safe homes for themselves and their children.

CPAF is thankful for Cathay Bank’s partnership to meet the critical needs of the individuals and families we serve. We look forward to partnering further with Cathay Bank in creating an Asian and Pacific Islander community that embraces healthy relationships and works to eradicate all forms of violence.
