In commemoration of October being Domestic Violence (DV) Awareness Month, the Korean American Family Service Center (KAFSC) is hosting an exciting family-friendly event – Purple 5K Dash to End Domestic Violence. This 5K run/walk campaign draws awareness to domestic violence and brings families, friends and the community together in an interactive way to raise funds for our Rainbow House Shelter.
The Rainbow House Shelter is one of it’s kind and provides emergency housing as well as social services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault for women and children in a culturally and linguistically appropriate setting.
The Korean American Family Service Center (KAFSC) is a leading, nonprofit organization that supports and empowers adults, youth and children to lead safe and healthy lives based on dignity, compassion and mutual respect. We are committed to preventing and ending domestic violence and relationship abuse, and creating a violence-free society. Our counseling, education and advocacy programs for individuals and families in the New York Tri-State area are provided in a culturally and linguistically appropriate setting.
