2023 Announcing: ReWA Named a 2023 Classy Awards Finalist
Today, we are excited to announce that ReWA is a top 50 finalist for the 2023 Classy Awards.
Classy, an affiliate of GoFundMe, is a Public Benefit Corporation and giving platform that enables nonprofits to connect supporters with the causes they care about. Classy’s platform provides powerful and intuitive fundraising tools to convert and retain donors. Since 2011, Classy has helped nonprofits mobilize and empower the world for good by helping them raise over $5 billion. Classy hosts the Classy Awards to spotlight the innovative work nonprofits are implementing around the globe. We’re proud to share that our Domestic Violence (DV) program is recognized for its contribution to help refugee and immigrant women and families overcome violence and sexual assault.
ReWA’s Domestic Violence program is the only program designed with all immigrants and refugees in mind. With nearly 1/4 residents of King County being foreign-born, the culturally and linguistically-responsive services the DV Program offers are crucial. Our community needs culturally competent, trained providers to support survivors and their children as they seek safety and rebuild their lives. Together, DV Program staff speak 24 languages and dialects, the most of any domestic violence provider in the Pacific Northwest. Last year, ReWA’s DV Program served 700 survivors worldwide, including Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, South America, and East Africa.
At ReWA, we understand the unique barriers that women and families in refugee and immigrant communities face. That’s why we’re dedicated to addressing them in ways that maintain victims’ sense of identity and attachment. As a trusted leader in this community, we provide a safe haven for victims to seek assistance without fear of retribution or shame. Our program helps victims rebuild their sense of self-worth, personal safety, and acceptance within their communities. This empowers them to transition into their lives here in America not as victims, but rather as empowered women/families.
