Founded in 1992, Narika supports underserved and underrepresented survivors of domestic violence in the Bay Area and California with a myriad of free, culturally responsive, confidential and personalized services including our toll-free crisis helpline, case management, legal support, counseling, support groups, housing support, job training and wellness programs. The large majority of our clients are immigrant, Asian, BIPOC, low-income, and/or non-English speaking residents of the Bay Area. Narika’s mission is to promote women’s independence, economic empowerment and well-being by helping domestic violence survivors with advocacy, support, and education. We serve our survivors and our community in a culturally responsive and linguistically diverse manner, offering support in multiple underrepresented languages and by advocates who share the backgrounds and cultural experiences of their clients. Since COVID-19, calls to Narika’s helpline have tripled and we have served our highest number of clients ever in our 29 years as an organization.
