ASHA network

ASHA is a volunteer-run organization and the majority of the volunteers are members of the South Asian community.

A network of advocates is managed by the executive director and client services coordinator who supervise daily client and administrative needs. The organization is governed by a 10-person board of directors, as well as an advisory board of former organization leaders, who advise ASHA about the most pressing issues facing women in their communities. In addition, ASHA has an expansive network of domestic violence service providers who share ASHA’s dedication to improving the abuse-free status of women.

ASHA for Women board members recruit and train volunteers to serve as advocates; organize awareness of and solicit support services from the South Asian community and participate in grassroots leadership development toward addressing the root causes of domestic violence.

Hope and empowerment

Asha means ‘hope’ in several South Asian languages. For the hundreds of women we have helped, this hope has been upheld by empowerment, by attaining self reliance.

We encourage and guide them

  • To become emotionally strong
  • Learn life skills for greater social competency
  • Pursue education or training to become self-reliant
