Hotline and Crisis Intervention

As an organization in helping women and children from violence and abusive families, Garden of Hope New York Hotline for Chinese family violence is an exit offered to anyone in need of support in the community. Through the technological advanced use of the internet and other resources, we not only have received phone calls from victims living in New York, but also from many other states. Many Chinese immigrant women who came to this foreign land have language barriers that prevented them from seeking help through U.S. justice and legal assistance. Telephone, internet, Chinese and English translations, and many other resources revived the hope of the helpless. Professionally trained counselors not only will understand the victim’ s afflictions, they will also use appropriate law, information on social security, along with joint usage of telephone, internet, translations, and real effective support to bring hopes to the hopeless.

Legal Service and Referral

Women under abuse will not only need an order of protection. The abusers often use many different malicious ways to gain control over their victims. Examples are reporting fake information to the police, threatening with immigration status, confiscating their victim’s identification, intentionally abandoning them, declaring divorce with injustice reasons, not allowing their victims to see their children, not supporting their living expenses, and using their victims’ credit card, etc… Abused women might also face other problems of their own at the same time like house rent and other legal issues concerning minor financial dispute. We give thanks to the nonprofit service organizations involving New York Legal Assistance Group, Legal Aid Society, Sanctuary for Families, Queens Legal Service, CUNY Law School Main Street Clinic, Connect, and other similar organization that have been working with us. Their attorneys not only specialized in laws concerning family violence, but also show special care to abused women. The free legal aid they offered practically helped many women break away from their misery.



約勵馨婦幼關懷中心的幫助對象為家暴受害者、目睹兒、受虐兒、性侵受害者、人口販運以及約會暴力受害者。

我們提供公共教育、中文熱線、危機處理、緊急救助、安全庇護、法律援助、社會福利、心理諮商、支持團體、就業輔導、靈命關懷等服務,協助受害者脫離被虐處境,增強自我保護及重建獨立生活能力。

我們協助因語言或文化因素陷入虐兒情境的家長,發揮正向的親職功能,重建生活秩序。透過危機處理、心理諮商、團體輔導協助經歷家暴或性侵的兒童及青少年創傷療癒,心靈重建。同時我們提供大哥哥大姊姊課業輔導、單親兒童夏令營、少女營等幫助弱勢兒童及青少年調適移民生活、建立良好的自我形象及人際關係。














諮商與關懷輔導

遭受家暴與性侵的受害人往往累積了很多的負面情緒,同時在心中留下無法磨滅的陰影。紐約勵馨的每一個同工都受過社工或諮商心理學相關專業訓練,能根據求助者的需要,提供適當與適時的心理支持、創傷療癒與危機處理。我們不僅有一般功能的會談室,還有一間多功能的表達性媒材會談室,讓目睹兒可以透過遊戲、藝術創作來表達說不出來的苦;讓受暴婦女透過沙盤創作、藝術創作來看見自己的困境與找尋生命的出路。


​目睹家暴兒少服務

​紐約勵馨服務的婦女百分之七十五有年幼的孩子。除了一般家暴目睹兒會有的負面特徵,如攻擊行為、抑鬱、焦慮、缺乏社交能力、學習成績落後,缺乏解決衝突的技巧、錯誤的性別刻板印象之外,新移民子女還會有強烈的異國適應不良及被遺棄的感覺。如果再加上被歧視,文化衝擊,以及缺乏英語能力,父母沒有提供必要的支持,反而成為一種干擾,孩子往往變得孤僻,充滿敵意,並且抑鬱。喜樂,對他們來說太遙遠;愛,對他們來說太珍貴。一個受傷的孩子,要的不是同情或憐憫,而是真誠的接納與真心的陪伴!

紐約勵馨透過危機處理、心理諮商、團體輔導協助經歷家暴或性侵的兒童及青少年創傷療癒,心靈重建。同時藉著大哥哥大姊姊課業輔導、暑期單親兒童夏令營等,幫助弱勢兒童調適移民生活、建立良好的自我形象及人際關係。​








庇護所--希望之家

Emotional Support and Trauma Therapy

On regular cases, victims of violence and sexual assault often have many negative feelings buried deep inside and traumas that are nearly impossible to erase. Our social workers and counselors offer appropriate emotional supports and trauma therapy according to the clients’ needs. Other than some normal function meeting rooms, we also have a multifunctional expressive media room that allows children to express unspeakable truth through games and crafts; women are able to use sand arts to see the situation they are currently in and, by using it, to find a way out in life.

Children Services

​Nearly 84% of the battered women Garden of Hope-New York served have minor children; these battered mothers averaged 1.4 children. In addition to the common effects of childhood exposure to domestic violence such as aggressive behavior, depression and anxiety, poor social competence, and academic failure, deficient conflict resolution skills, pro-violence attitudes, and belief in rigid gender stereotypes, immigrant children often experience an aggravated sense of foreignness and abandonment, thus exacerbating the experience of rejection that began with mother’s battering and intensified with parental divorce. The problem is often worsened by discrimination, cultural dislocation, and lack of English proficiency. As a result, children may become withdrawn, hostile or depressed while their parents become a source of disturbance rather than a source of support.

We provide counseling, case management, summer camp, tutoring and support groups to children and youth who witnessed or have been exposed to domestic violence.

Shelter - Hope House
Garden of Hope-NY established Hope House in 2011, a bilingual emergency shelter. We provide a confidential and safe space for women and children.
