The Fostering Cultural Competency Project:

My Sister’s House launched its Fostering Cultural Competency Project in January 2009 with two sister DV agencies. Since then, My Sister’s House has received three cycles of funding from the Blue Shield of California Foundation allowing the project to expand and engage 14 shelters across Northern California, serving 17 counties. Now called the Next Generation Network, what has emerged is a highly successful approach to inform and transform the cultural responsiveness of domestic violence organizations to more effectively serve Asian Pacific Islander domestic violence and sexual assault victims. The project seeks to achieve two objectives:

  • Increase the ability of all participating agencies to understand the unique needs of the API community and to provide culturally tailored outreach, prevention practices and policies.
  • Raise awareness among Asian and Pacific Islander ethnic and cultural organizations regarding domestic violence and lay the foundation for a collaborative relationship between DV agencies and the API groups within their service areas.

Parking info:

  • Metered street parking is available.

  • Some individuals attending past workshops have been successful in parking for free in nearby residential neighborhoods, within 2 or 3 blocks or paying for parking at the nearby lots.

  • Parking is not available in the side parking lot or the parking garage.
