Beneficiary Partner Focus:The Center for Pacific Asian Families (CPAF) Provides Shelter and Housing to Domestic Violence Survivors
Our beneficiary partner for 2015, CPAF, is a nonprofit agency dedicated to assisting Asian and Pacific Islanders who are surviving sexual assault and/or domestic violence.
But finding ways to leave an abusive environment is always a big challenge. Thus, an important part of CPAF's mission is to help secure shelter and housing for such survivors. To this end, CPAF provides the following services: 24 Hour Hotline and intervention services Emergency shelter Transitional shelter Employment and Housing Initiative Children’s Programs
For example, in 2013, CPAF helped 103 women and children to receive 6,680 night of emergency shelter. Of these people, 76% moved into safe permanent or transitional housing. Also, 5,395 nights of transitional housing was provided to 27 women and children. 100% of these moved into safe permanent housing.

Volunteer Of The Month : April
Patrick has been a volunteer photographer and videographer for the marketing team at Project by Project for the past few months, capturing events in the highest quality. Patrick is currently an owner of a vintage-inspired contemporary women's clothing line as well as the Vice President of a textile printing and apparel manufacturing company. If you meet Patrick, take him out for some Korean or Thai food; any food that is a combination of spicy, tangy, and salty makes his taste buds sing! If he could choose his last meal on Earth, he would like a meal at French Laundry accompanied by a taco from that taco place on Olympic/La Brea.
