The Asha Project is the first and only culturally specific African American domestic abuse provider in Wisconsin.
Saving Our Sisters and Saving Our Selves (SOS) is our current response to domestic violence led by a content expert researcher. SOS is a program of The Asha Project’s Ujima Men’s Program that is culturally responsive, and trauma informed for African American males who use violence and abuse in domestic and intimate partner relationships. SOS combines a unique campaign along with focus groups with Black men to gather data for analysis on DV/IPV and community violence which is a little explored area that we believe can help.

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 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!
