The Access, Inc. VAWA Legal Program began in 1997. This program received an initial $10,000 grant from the San Diego Foundation Alice B. Hayes Discretionary Fund to identify and represent 25 immigrant victims of domestic violence. Since that time, this program has grown to now serve 200 immigrant victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking each year in San Diego County. Access SAVE Legal Network which began in October 2014 has already served 500 immigrant and refugee survivors of primarily sexual assault whose situations were made more difficult during the pandemic.
Beyond providing legal assistance, we are working to empower women and young women to speak out and advocate for other women who are struggling in unhealthy relationships through monthly workshops and a year long leadership program to combat gender based violence.
With a minimum donation of $10, you can help us change lives and improve our communities for children to live free from violence.
Please help us raise at least $3000 during the month of October- Domestic Violence Awareness Month- to support survivors who need our help. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much for your suppport.
