Ashakiran

Contact Email
info@ashakiranonline.org
Description

AshaKiran was started to fill a community need and help foreign born individuals experiencing crises in Alabama to overcome barriers such as language, cultural and/or religious stigmas through education and empowerment and providing culturally sensitive services. Our mission has always been to help any foreign born individual dealing with crises, such as domestic violence and sexual assault, by providing specific culturally sensitive servicesbut we were originally limited to focusing on people with South Asian origins. That focus developed out of an initial lack of language resources. AshaKiran was found by volunteers and those dedicated individuals were comfortable providing services in South Asian languages. As the organization grew so did the number of languages we could operate in. We have achieved our mission and are now able to help any foreign born individual.

Through a variety of community and individual based confidential culturally sensitive programs and initiatives, AshaKiran provides a “ray of hope” toward building a more healthy and harmonious community.Throughout the years, AshaKiran has been fortunate to receive donations and support from various community organizations and businesses as well as several grants from state organizations such as the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), Alabama Council on Developmental Disabilities (ACDD), Victims of Crime Act (VOCA). As a result, AshaKiran has been able to bring on a few new staff and safe home members allowing an increase of services to victims/survivors and in 2015, began expanding its services throughout the state of Alabama providing additional cultural sensitivity trainings and collaborations with state and other non-profit organizations.

Asian Women's Shelter

Description

The Asian Women’s Shelter addresses one of OVW’s Priority Issue Areas, community-driven initiatives to address violence against women among diverse and underserved populations. AWS offers a multi-leveled, community-driven approach to technical assistance through building the capacity of survivors and members of underserved communities to respond to violence against women directly within their communities, as well as in partnership with OVW grantees. AWS’s TA project has three main components: Peer-to-Peer Comprehensive Technical Assistance, Community Driven Initiatives, and Collaborative Training and Technical Assistance. AWS provides TA through a peer approach, sharing on-the-ground experience, training and practical applications, while honoring the expertise and community-driven perspectives unique to each TA site. In a joint selection process, OVW and AWS select 5-7 sites annually for intensive, on-site training and technical assistance. Through participation as Peer-to-Peer TA sites, community-based programs across the country have been able to start language and culturally competent shelter programs; replicate AWS’s Multilingual Access Model; strengthen collaboration with law enforcement and other OVW grantees; create major philosophical and structural change within their organizations to respond to changing demographics; and reach new segments in their geographic areas, such as faith-based institutions, non-English speaking populations, and LGBT communities. AWS, in collaboration with community based partners and other partner OVW TA providers, provides additional training and technical assistance to 20-50 sites through on-site training and email and phone correspondence.
