Our Story

We fill a need in the community that mainstream agencies may not be able to address adequately​ by:

  • AshaKiran understands what crisis looks like in multicultural communities​.

  • AshaKiran invests in individuals with multicultural backgrounds that have additional barriers ​

  • AshaKiran bridges the gap between service providers and culturally specific communities​.


AshaKiran Services
