The Mission & Vision:
AshaKiran is committed to educate, empathize and empower persons of South Asian origin while providing confidential referral services.
AshaKiran fills a need in the community that the mainstream agencies may not be able to address adequately. We partner with local agencies to make their services more accessible. Based on recent statistics, almost 40% of the South Asian community in the United States suffers from emotional trauma. In addition, many have a difficult time asking for help. Some common barriers are; Communication and language barriers Lack of support from family and friends Lack of knowledge about available resources Cultural and religious diversity from mainstream belief system AshaKiran is to be a ray of hope toward building a healthy and harmonious community.
