Our mission is to build healthy and safe communities by addressing the root causes and the consequences of family violence and violence against women. CPAF is committed to meeting the specific cultural and language needs of API women and their families.
In 1981, CPAF opened the first multi-lingual and multi-cultural emergency shelter in the nation that specialized in serving API survivors of domestic violence. Thereafter, in 1998, CPAF was also the first to open a multi-lingual and multi-cultural transitional housing program focusing on the needs of the API survivors who seek to establish independent, violence free lives.
