Awaaz is a non-profit organization that provides referrals through multilingual advocates for South Asian individuals affected by domestic violence in San Antonio and surrounding areas.

We provide services to domestic violence survivors including a 24-hour Helpline and confidential referrals (legal, medical, shelter, counseling, etc.)
