About DVRP

The Asian/Pacific Islander Domestic Violence Resource Project’s (DVRP) mission is to address, prevent and end domestic violence and sexual assault in Asian/Pacific Islander communities while empowering survivors to rebuild their lives after abuse. DVRP was founded in 1995 by Asian/Pacific Islander women concerned that local A/PI survivors were unable to access mainstream services due to cultural and language barriers. DVRP was formed to mitigate the multiple cultural and linguistic barriers facing those within the A/PI community who also identify as survivors.
