Asian Family Support Services of Austin (SAHELI for Asian Families)

About this Organization

Asian Family Support Services of Austin (AFSSA, formerly SAHELI) transforms the lives of Asian and Pacific Islander families dealing with domestic violence, sexual assault and trafficking to ensure they are happy, thriving and productive members of our communities.

AFSSA does what no other domestic or sexual assault organization in Central Texas can. AFSSA provides a complete continuum of support in over 30 languages, with special care for the unique social, cultural and familial circumstances of the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.

We are a survivor-centered organization supporting women, men, and children who have been affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, or trafficking. Although AFSSA's focus is on the Asian community, we do not discriminate and our services are for anyone who needs assistance. Our services are based on the inherent philosophy that each individual’s experiences, level of resource access and needs differ from one case to another. We strive to provide tailored, cultural and language specific services to anyone who enters through our doors.
