Mission Statement

SAHARA’s mission is to serve the growing South Asian community in Southern California by providing information, referrals, skills development, and other culturally-sensitive support services needed to meet the unique challenges they face, and to deal with the personal crises of South Asian survivors of domestic abuse.

Description

SAHARA, meaning "support" in Hindi, was established in 1991 by a dedicated group of five clinical social workers and two physicians who came together to meet the underserved needs of the South Asian community in Southern California. What began and was sustained for a number of years through primarily volunteer service and investment has grown into a fully staffed agency supporting youth, older adults, and survivors of domestic abuse.

Over the last 25 years SAHARA has expanded its programs to include a robust menu of culturally sensitive and linguistically specific services focused on improving the quality of life of individuals seeking support. Confidential and personalized professional services are available at the main office in Artesia, California, as well as at two satellite offices in the San Fernando Valley and Orange County.
