My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Asian/Pacific Islander Domestic Violence Resource Project, Washington, DC, USA
I first served as a Bilingual Advocate with 40+ hours of training to advocate for survivors of domestic violence. I took on a survivor and my life has forever changed. I learned quickly that my presence in my survivor's life is essentially crucial. With similar cultural backgrounds, I was able to provide direct service and have a good rapport with my survivor who is need of assistance that was culturally competent.
Now I am currently serving as a Community Ambassador working on special events.
With years of wanting to do something about domestic violence in the Asian/Pacific Islander community, but did not know where to begin, DVRP and it's leaders gave me the opportunity to make this dream happen. I have seen the wonderful work that DVRP does first hand. DVRP has given me hope that we can be a step closer in ending violence.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
shake a magic wand and have DVRP be filled with endless amount of financial and human resources to sustain their work for many decades to make a better world for the community.
