Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI)
24-hour hotline: 408-975-2739
Clean, well-organized and informative, the AACI is an excellent resource for learning about relationship violence and ways to combat and prevent it. The website is easy to maneuver and can be viewed in English, Vietnamese and Chinese. There is also a 24-hour hotline anyone can call for help.

Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum
This group does not focus exclusively on relationship violence, but houses the Asian & Pacific Islander Institute on Domestic Violence, a resource center and clearinghouse on abuse in Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities. Guides to resources as well as language and interpretation services are a highlight of the APIAHF.

The Hotline (National Domestic Violence Hotline)
1-800-799-SAFE
Not just a service for teens, anyone can call the NDVH at anytime. The hotline connects callers to help in their local area using a nationwide database of domestic violence shelters, emergency shelters, legal advocacy groups, and assistance and social service programs.

Love is Not Abuse program
The program was founded in 1991 by Liz Claiborne Inc. and has since evolved into an online support and resource center. Get the facts, see the signs and learn how you can get involved in preventing and ending relationship violence at their website.

Love is Respect
1-866-331-9474
1-866-331-8453 (TTY)
The website connects to the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline, where teens can call and talk with peer advocates. Teens can also chat with peers online. Support and assistance is completely confidential.
