Resource Guide

API Chaya

“We are a survivor-led organization focused on serving survivors of sexual violence, human trafficking, and domestic violence from Pacific Islander, Native Hawaiian, Asian, and South Asian communities. To center those at the margins, we keep young people, faith-based communities, queer and Trans Black, Indigenous, and people of color, people with disabilities, and immigrants at our core.

Culturally specific support services help survivors move from crisis to healing and thriving. Our free and confidential wraparound services include intensive case management, safety planning, emotional support, legal services, and therapy. Our advocates work closely with survivors to reach safety and independence.

We know that when survivors face abuse, they first turn to their close networks. We train these networks to prevent and respond to violence through support, leadership and skill building programs that are language and culture specific. This creates supportive environments for all survivors in their daily lives – in their homes, at their places of worship, in their schools, their workplace, and neighborhoods.”
