ATASK's Strategic Plan for 2022-2025

This is such an important time for ATASK as we look to our future. It is with great pride and a strong belief in the work we do on behalf of survivors that we present our Strategic Plan for 2022-2025.


Our Strategic Plan centers on our renewed mission:

ATASK empowers Asian survivors of domestic violence and abuse to rebuild their lives. Our work bridges language and cultural gaps for Asian communities and advocates for social change.

Our plan will strengthen our organization, and ensure that we have the infrastructure to sustain ATASK’s work as we continue to expand our services and reach. It is a thoughtful reflection of our past and a roadmap to building a successful future, and will be a guiding force for our Board, our staff and the entire ATASK community.

Together as a community, we look forward to realizing our plan to ensure continued success for our clients.

   

ATASK is Hope 

At ATASK, we often talk about HOPE as an acronym for the services we provide: Housing, Outreach & Education, Programs, and Empowerment. But for survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence, hope is the longing for an outcome that improves their lives, the anticipation of something greatly desired. It is hope that makes present difficulties easier to bear.




Since 1992, our mission has been to prevent domestic violence in Asian communities, provide support and offer hope to survivors. Most of our clients are immigrants and refugees from East Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia and face unique cultural challenges when confronting domestic violence in the home. Many have limited English skills, which makes accessing services through traditional avenues quite difficult. We employ a multilingual staff made up of immigrants, refugees, and survivors, who have a deep understanding of our clients' linguistic and cultural barriers. Through our staff and services designed specifically for Asian immigrant communities, ATASK provides hope to survivors.

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.
