Mission is to eliminate domestic violence by promoting the social, economic and political self-determination of women and all survivors of violence and oppression. AWS is committed to every person's right to live in a violence-free home, and has a specific focus towards addressing the cultural and language needs of immigrant, refugee, and U.S.-born Asian and Arab women and their children. This perspective is reflected in the organization's broad strategy, which integrates culturally grounded and language-accessible crisis lines, emergency shelter, transitional housing, community engagement and violence prevention programs, training and education programs, systems and policy advocacy, and cultural change initiatives.
