What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic Violence, also known as Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) has been defined as a pattern of coercive control consisting of physical, psychological and/or sexual assaults against current or former intimate partner.
Mission & Vision
ASHA-Ray of Hope exists to support and counsel individuals and families affected by domestic violence in Ohio, especially in the South Asian community. Through advocacy, collaboration and awareness activities, ASHA will help educate the greater community and connect individuals and families with the resources they need to achieve self-reliance.
It's hard to talk about domestic violence for any victim/survivor, especially within South Asian Community. To create more awareness about domestic violence, a few of our brave sisters have decided to talk about it. Here is our first video in that series. The goal of this video and others to follow is to openly address domestic violence and to improve quality of life for families in our communities.
