Asking for help is not always easy. Many of us take for granted that we can pick up the phone and call 911 in the event of an emergency. We also have the privilege of walking into a provider’s office and asking for help, whether it be for medical, legal, housing, or employment matters. This, however, is not always the case for many clients of the Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence (ATASK). Due to language barriers, most of our clients do not have the English skills needed to navigate the systems here in the U.S.

Lin is an ATASK client who was afraid to call 911 because she didn't speak English. Lin came to our emergency shelter, got legal help, enrolled her child in daycare so she could take English classes, and then later entered a job training program. With the support of ATASK, Lin is now employed, and is proud to be raising her son in a safe and happy environment.

Please help immigrant survivors like Lin by making a donation to ATASK:
