Organization Description:KAN-WIN’s mission is to eradicate all forms of violence against women, including domestic violence and sexual assault, by empowering Asian American survivors and engaging the community through culturally competent services, community education and outreach, and advocacy. Its vision is to create healthy communities free from violence and oppression, in which all women and children can reach their full potential.
Since its founding 30 years ago, KAN-WIN has grown to become one of the premier agencies in the United States with expertise in serving Asian American and immigrant survivors of gender- based violence. Through a set of intensive wrap-around services, including a multilingual 24-hour hotline, legal advocacy, transitional housing program, individual and group counseling, and peer advocacy leadership development, KAN-WIN helps address complex and unique barriers that many immigrant survivors face as they seek to escape from abuse. All KAN-WIN’s services are free and confidential, and it strives to provide them in the survivor’s native language. Previously, KAN-WIN went by the name of “Korean American Women in Need.” In 2013, it decided to go solely by “KAN-WIN” because its clientele became much more diverse since opening its doors. With the name change, KAN-WIN is demonstrating its commitment to meeting the greater diversity of cultural and linguistic needs among Asian Americans in the greater Chicago area.
