Ohio Hispanic Coalition

About this Organization

Helping victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault is one of the top priorities of the Ohio Hispanic Coalition. We have a support group and two full-time Promotoras de Salud who exclusively work with Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault cases. These Promotoras fulfill many functions while working with these cases; they become victim advocates, educators, and caseworkers to ensure that the victim has access to every legal, medical, and social service available to them.  The program places an emphasis on self empowerment, allowing the victim to be in charge of their decisions, and a strong focus on informing victims of their legal rights, even if they choose not to pursue any legal action.

Services we offer include:

  • Medical and legal advocacy
  • Court companionship
  • Assistance filing the victim compensation application
  • Registering for the VINE line
  • Group support
  • Referrals to other necessary services.

Additional services include:

  • health
  • youth & education
  • general trainings

About this Organization

Asian American Community Services is dedicated to serving the entire Asian and Asian-American population in central Ohio, spanning across countries and continent. Here at AACS, we strive to understand the nuances within these communities and provide services in the most culturally competent manner possible.

Our Family Support Program (FSP) provides services to crime victims (i.e. hate bias, domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking). We help our clients navigate emergency assistance, transportation and referrals to partner agencies. In addition, we also provide support to senior citizens through our Senior Outreach Program and youth programming, Healthy Asian Youth (HAY).

Our Asian Health Initiative (AHI) is a collaborative community project that seeks to improve the health of the medically underserved Asian population in Central Ohio. Our goals are to improve access to health care, assist in maintaining good health and host health screenings.

AACS also aids in prevention work through community education workshops and presentations.

We provide 24/7 interpreters in 30+ Asian languages. Our interpreters assist with hospitals, social service agencies, police departments, courts, and schools as well as other public and private organizations in Central Ohio. We have many types of community education courses, such as Computer Literacy (taught in English) and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.
