The importance for a shelter is not only to create a safe haven for victims. It is also necessary to provide services such as peer counseling for battered women and their children and to refer them for legal and medical advice. In addition, guidance is also needed for these victims to fill out paperwork for new green cards (in many cases the abusive husband does not hand it over), to receive individual and group counseling in the appropriate language and to obtain proper job leads. Aasra volunteers sometimes provide interpretation assistance to victims and assist them in filling out and filing restraining orders.
Aasra is sponsored by the non-profit Federation of Indo-Americans (FIA). The organization depends on volunteer support and donations for funding.
