- KAN-WIN a small nonprofit organization that doesn't have a dedicated Human Resources department/person. As a result, there isn't a robust structure to monitor employee morale & engagement, workplace safety, and potential legal liabilities. There is great teamwork and communication among coworkers, but we are hoping to work with an HR consultant who can help us set up a strong foundation for sound HR practices moving forward.
Our small team of 14 staff (mix of full-time and part-time) are dedicated to providing services to victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Due to our limited resources and funding, we are not able to dedicate a significant portion of our budget to overhead administrative costs like HR. However, burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma, among others, are extremely common among professionals in this field and we want to take care of our employees.
KAN-WIN’s mission and purpose is to eradicate all forms of violence against women, including domestic violence and sexual assault, by empowering Asian American survivors and engaging the community through culturally competent services, community education and outreach, and advocacy. KAN-WIN’s vision is to create healthy communities free from violence and oppression, in which all women and children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
