How you help We’re excited to connect your passions and skills with our mission to create healthy, peaceful families and communities.
About us Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF) was founded to help address domestic violence and sexual assault in the Asian and Pacific Islander communities. We are committed to meeting the specific cultural and language needs of Asian and Pacific Islander women and their families. In 1981, we opened the first multi-lingual and multi-cultural domestic violence emergency shelter in the nation that specialized in serving API survivors of domestic violence. In 2005, we expanded our Community Program, focused on community engagement and violence prevention programs. We provide a wide range of comprehensive services, all of which are free of charge, conducted in many API languages.
