Silk Road Gala 2020: ATASK's Virtual Gala

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported our virtual Silk Road Gala! We were thrilled to celebrate our community's strength together with you., and to hare the impact that ATASK has had, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We raised more then $150,000, with donations continuing to arrive. If you missed the event, you can watch the video at anytime.

We are especially grateful to Grace, who shared her journey as a survivor with us. Through her story, we see that lives can indeed be changed when others support and believe in you. Most importantly, her courage and determination provide HOPE to others. She is an inspiration to us all.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to each of you, our supporters. Thank you for believing in ATASK and for honoring our mission to prevent domestic violence in Asian families and communities. With your support, together we are making a difference in the lives of survivors.

We would also like to thank our leading sponsor Tufts Medical Center, all our sponsors, and everyone who devoted their talent and time to make the Gala a success. We could not have done this without their support and partnership.

 

ATASK Supports Survivors During COVID-19 Pandemic  

During these challenging times, ATASK continues to provide critical services to domestic violence survivors. Our 24/7 hotline is in full operation, our advocates are working with survivors remotely, our legal team is processing cases, and our shelter remains open.  Services are free, confidential, and available to documented and undocumented persons.

While our communities stay at home to reduce health risks from COVID-19, victims of domestic violence are finding themselves more at risk and unable to distance themselves from their abusers to get help.  If you or someone you know needs help, please call our 24-hour multilingual hotline at (617) 338-2355.  We can provide resources, safety planning and support.  


We are grateful to those who have generously responded to the growing needs of survivors during this economically difficult period.  We are thankful for community partners that have given us emergency grants, including Tufts Medical CenterUnited Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, Fish Family Foundation, Anna B. Stearns Charitable Foundation, Boston Resiliency Fund, Greater Lowell Community Foundation, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance.  Funds are being distributed directly to clients to assist with housing, food and other essentials.

We are also incredibly appreciative of the past support we have received from our community of donors, giving ATASK the stability and ability to quickly pivot and adapt the way we provide services during this crisis.

These are difficult times for everyone, and even more so, for those who live in fear in their very own homes.  Please make a donation today so we can continue responding to the needs of victims.
   

What Would You Do if You Couldn't Call 911?  

Asking for help is not always easy. Many of us take for granted that we can pick up the phone and call 911 in the event of an emergency. We also have the privilege of calling a provider and asking for help, whether it be for medical, legal, housing, or employment matters. This, however, is not always the case for many of our clients. Due to language barriers, most of our clients do not have the English skills needed to navigate the systems here in the U.S.

I didn't know how to call 911

Lin is a Chinese immigrant who was afraid to call 911 because she couldn't speak English.  ATASK was able to get her the help she needed. Lin came to our emergency shelter, got legal help, enrolled her child in daycare so she could take English classes, and then later entered a job training program. With the support of ATASK, Lin is now employed, and is proud to be raising her son in a safe and happy environment.
