Project by Project Los Angeles is partnering with Center for the Pacific Asian Family to advocate for Asian & Pacific Islander American representation in the movement to end homelessness in Los Angeles County.

One of the main drivers of homelessness is domestic violence. Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF) provides survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault with emergency and transitional shelters and permanent housing as well as API language and cultural support services.

↪ In 2018, over 3000 people reported becoming homeless in Los Angeles County due to fleeing domestic violence.

↪ CPAF operates the only emergency shelter in Southern CA specialized in addressing the needs of domestic violence survivors in the API Community.

↪ 75% of survivors assisted by CPAF are API immigrant women who speak little to no English.

Proceeds from Plate by Plate go towards helping CPAF with critical services:
• emergency food and shelter for families
• facilitation of workshops on dating violence prevention for API youth
• housewarming kits for families that move into new homes
• stipends for survivors to get job training or take English as a second language

Project by Project - Los Angeles Celebrates Its Fifteenth Partner For 2019

2019-cpaf-pbpla.jpg

Los Angeles, CA (April 22, 2019) – Every year, Project by Project - Los Angeles (PbP-LA) partners with a non-profit organization to advance awareness of important social issues in the Los Angeles Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community. After an engaging selection process with our Los Angeles community members, we are proud to announce our beneficiary partner for the 2019 theme of Asian Americans and Homelessness, the Center for Pacific Asian Family (CPAF).

Center for Pacific Asian Family (CPAF) was founded to help address domestic violence and sexual assault in the Asian Pacific Islander community. Since 1978, CPAF has been addressing the root causes and consequences of both violence in families and against API women and their families. Expanding through their recent community programs, CPAF has reached the needs of survivors who seek to establish independent, violence-free lives in a stable housing environment.

Recent reports have shown that not only has homelessness risen among Asian Americans, but also Asian Americans have been experiencing the highest growth in homelessness among all racial groups. With even more Asian American families living in at-risk environments here in Los Angeles, our selection of CPAF the 2019 beneficiary partner could not be a better fit to raise awareness of homelessness that affects the Los Angeles API community. Through the success of their on-going housing programs, CPAF has matched API victims of domestic violence and sexual assault with both transitional shelters and permanent housing.

This beneficiary partnership will pull together our resources to support a year-long campaign to raise funds for the housing project through our annual signature tasting benefit, Plate by Plate on Saturday, August 3, 2019. This exclusive dining experience brings together in August a curated list of the most popular chefs, restaurants, and beverage purveyors in Los Angeles in support of our 2019 theme. The following restaurant sponsors have already been confirmed: Otium, Bone Kettle, Pikoh, Patina, Restauration, Rappahannock Oyster Bar, Metropole Bar and Kitchen, Broken Spanish, Faith and Flower, Hinoki and the Bird, Kazunori, and Umi by Hamasaku. Stay tuned as we bring on even more amazing sponsors!

Through our awareness campaign and our volunteer support at community events, Project by Project aims to bring the issue of homelessness to light by highlighting the critical work CPAF has done to provide support and bring resources to the growing API homeless population. Join us on for a special speakers panel on May 21st at General Assembly DTLA covering “Asian Americans and Homelessness,” featuring experts from non-profit, government, and social enterprise to discuss their role in combating and preventing homelessness in LA County. This event is free to attend and open to the public.

To ensure the success of our partnership, PbP has dedicated a special pro-bono consulting taskforce, CASES, to exploring ways for new rental units to match participants of CPAF community programs with multi-lingual and multi-cultural transitional housing.  Through our actionable recommendations, our beneficiary partner can leverage our interviews, research, and analysis to support housing safeguards that could connect vetted homeowners and tenants together. Together with our 2019 beneficiary partner, PbP-LA hopes to engage at the forefront to improve the lives of those who need it the most in the API community.

About CPAF - Center for Pacific Asian Families

Center for the Pacific Asian Family’s (CPAF) story begins in 1978, when a Filipina American woman named Nilda Rimonte questioned whether an immigrant Asian or Pacific Islander (API) woman experiencing domestic or sexual violence could get help – any help. When she found no clear options available she pioneered the programs that CPAF now use today.  Built in the mission to build healthy and safe communities by addressing the root causes and consequences of family violence and violence against women. CPAF is committed to meeting the specific cultural and language needs of Asian and Pacific Islander women and their families. CPAF created the first multi-lingual 24-hour hotline assisting API survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in the nation. In 1981, CPAF opened the first multi-lingual and multi-cultural domestic violence emergency shelter in the nation that specialized in serving API survivors of domestic violence. Thereafter, CPAF was also the first to open a multi-lingual and multi-cultural transitional program focusing on the needs of survivors who seek to establish independent, violence-free lives.

Announcing Our 2019 Theme

Each year Project by Project selects an important theme to champion. We are excited to announce our 2019 campaign theme: Asian Americans and Homelessness.

For anyone living in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, it is evident that homelessness is a problem in these cities, and one that is unavoidable. What is lesser known is how the Asian American homeless population has been growing drastically within the last decade.

The issue of Homelessness is not only prevalent in the cities where there are PbP chapters, but also in cities without a large Asian American community. This issue is a subject of much contention due to various factors such as stigma, under-reported data, and lack of awareness. With your help, let's shine a spotlight to this issue and tackle homelessness together.


Our Selection Process Has Begun!

PbP-LA is seeking to partner with a local community-based organization to highlight and assist the important work being done to provide support and resources to Asian Pacific Islander individuals and families experiencing homelessness. We aim to raise awareness of the unique issues, concerns, and experiences of our API communities while bringing the skills and resources of PbP volunteers to further the impact, capacity, and sustainability of our beneficiary partner.

We will be selecting a Los Angeles-based non-profit organization focused on issues within this year's theme and tailor a year-long campaign to help in fundraising, community outreach, and public awareness efforts.

Applications Due: Friday, March 15, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. PST.

In 2018, with Asian Americans & Immigration as Project by Project’s national campaign theme, our objective was to raise awareness regarding anti-immigration propaganda and major policy changes sweeping our country. PbP-LA partnered with community nonprofit OCA-Greater Los Angeles and championed their Mentored Path to Citizenship Grant program, which helps overcome the financial, cultural, and legal barriers facing our immigrant community in securing status and status for their families. At $725, the current fee for the naturalization application has increased 80% in the last 10 years, compared to minimum wage which has only increased 40%. Through the support of the Project by Project community and Plate by Plate attendees, we successfully raised funds to help individuals achieve the dream of American citizenship.

Thank you for helping make our 2018 Immigration Campaign and Plate by Plate LA a success.

In the end, the volunteer consultant team for Changing Tides program at the Little Tokyo Service Center working on API community’s mental health awareness campaign won the hackathon with their clear delivery and comprehensive unique solution.

Project LEAD is an expansion on PbP's nonprofit consulting initiative Project CASES. CASES most recently partnered with Asian Americans Advancing Justice-LA on an extended engagement conducting research and financial modeling supporting workers' rights litigation in the California nail salon industry. The CASES team presented their findings at Project LEAD to give attendees a sneak preview of our 12-week pro-bono program.
