Mission Statement

Chaya's mission is to serve South Asian women in crisis, and to ultimately reduce the incidence of domestic violence.

Description

Chaya is a community based nonprofit organization established in 1996 to serve South Asian women in times of crisis and need, and to raise awareness of domestic violence issues. While there are excellent agencies that provide services for Southeast Asians in Seattle, Chaya is the only organization that specifically addresses the needs of South Asian women. Chaya's greatest strength is that it is a network of people who are primarily South Asian who understand the cultural norms and stigmas associated with domestic violence and believe in the inherent strength and potential of each woman to address situations in which there has been systematic emotional and physical violence. Chaya's services are free, confidential, and available to any woman in need.
