ASHA means “hope” in several South Asian languages. ASHA for Women, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, dedicates its services to provide community-based, culturally-competent support to South Asian women and their children who have faced domestic violence in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
ASHA for Women was one of the first South Asian domestic violence organizations to be formed in the United States. Founded in 1989, it was created in response to the needs of South Asian women who face language, cultural, and social barriers, and fall through the cracks of the domestic violence service system.
