In 2022, the Outreach Team has been able to continue our cultural awareness efforts through training and education both virtually and in-person. Full-day trainings were offered across the state; and many more virtually to
ensure accessibility and reach. It is our goal to promote community awareness while also providing relevant support for our clients. As we move forward, our outreach efforts will continue to ensure the sustainability of the
AshaKiran mission and vision to promote cultural intelligence. We will continue to nurture current relationships
and build new, to better serve our target population.

Transportation & Accompaniment
The opportunity to treat people as what they are - humans. Human beings deserving of love, understanding, and empathy; regardless of their gender, race, social economic status, religion, or country of origin.I want to play a role in helping others going through adversity realize this is a part of their story, but does not have to define them. They have the opportunity to decide how the story will end. Whatever role I can play in helping them realize their potential and empowering them to continue to move forward is an honor.
