We Are Here To Help

The Asha Project is the first and only culturally specific African American domestic abuse provider in Wisconsin  

About Us

Our Mission


 To help survivors empower themselves. We seek to provide culturally specific programming for the complex issues of domestic violence, sexual abuse and sex trafficking. This complexity is often  compounded by problems along racial lines, historical trauma, discrimination, a lack of access to services in the community,  and providers' inadequate cultural knowledge of daily issues for victims of abuse residing in the community.   

Our Team


Our amazing team of staff and  volunteers are committed to helping and serving others. Trained in cultural competence with particularly African American populations, we take our convictions and turn them into action. Think you would be a good fit? See our form below for more information!
