January 27, 2010ZIONSVILLE, INDIANA---FANIMATION has recently sponsored the New York Asian Women's Center's Peace House Grand Opening Celebration Community Dinner. The NYAWC (www.nyawc.org) is the exclusive resource in New York with special Asian language, culture counseling and shelter capabilities to help Asian victims of violence and human trafficking. FANIMATION is a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative ceiling fans.
NYAWC has grown to be an award-winning agency, which is also the largest domestic violence-counseling provider for Asian Americans in the national and the largest minority-led domestic violence organization in New York State. NYAWC manages the only licensed emergency shelters for Asian American violence survivors in the tri-state region (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut).
FANIMATION has sponsored The Peace House Community Dinner, which was held on August 27th at the LaGuardia Sheraton in Flushing, Queens in New York City. Reaching out to the fastest growing immigrant community in New York, Peace House is the organization's first emergency shelter based in Queens and targeted at this diverse, but often difficult to reach, community. The Peace House shelters serve families in the Queens Community and provide a human trafficking recovery program called “Project Free.” Project Free recognizes the many similarities between domestic violence and human trafficking. Of the 17,500 slaves that exist in the US, many come through New York, and over 80 percent are women and children sold into the sex trade.
Every year the NYAWC receives thousands of calls to its hotline in various languages and assists battered women and their children. Of the women they serve, most come to the center with incomes below the poverty line. More than 70 percent enroll in Vocational or English language training through the organization’s Emergency Shelter Program.
The NYAWC helps Asian, Pacific Islander, and South Asian women and their children in the New York metro area to overcome violence and govern their own lives, free of abuse. The Center also works to raise public awareness about domestic violence, advocate for the rights of battered women, and create an agenda for social change.
