Domestic Violence Services

2 in 5 South Asian immigrant women in the U.S. are survivors of domestic violence*

We offer a full range of culturally-sensitive, linguistically-appropriate services including: crisis response, safety-planning, and ongoing emotional support; accompaniments, translation assistance and advocacy in court, during healthcare visits, and at public benefits and welfare agencies; weekly support groups; connections to counseling, low-cost or free health consultations and exams, public benefits, and shelter and/or housing.  Each year, Sakhi’s Domestic Violence Advocate team supports hundreds of South Asian women facing abuse in their lives.
