In Sanskrit "Shakthi" means Strength and Empowerment
The mission of Shakthi US is to provide a space for survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence; with a focus on the South Asian community, Shakthi provides education, empowerment, resources, and support to prevent and break the cycle of violence. Shakthi US provides skills training for survivors so that they are empowered to build healthy and successful lives.
Shakthi US recognizes the unique cultural circumstances of the South Asian community and tailors services to end domestic/intimate partner violence for this population. By providing a safe space and culturally sensitive resources we assist families in building independent lives free of violence.
We believe everyone can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Shakthi US envisions a South Asian community where healthy and safe
relationships; and families thrive, free of violence.
