Our Impact

At Sakhi, we go beyond breaking the silence surrounding gender-based violence. We are fighters—we work tirelessly to promote the happiness, safety, and stability of survivors to strengthen our community.


At Sakhi, we work to ensure that our community has access to the material and emotional resources and support that are needed to both prevent and respond to violence.

In 2023, this commitment manifested in numerous ways, including but not limited to:

  • An expansion of our helpline, which is now available from 10AM-10PM Monday through Saturday and provides support in over seven South Asian languages. We plan to further expand our helpline to be 24/7 by the end of 2024.
  • Over $1,000,000 distributed to survivors and their families in rental assistance for safe, independent housing.
  • Our Match-Savings Program, geared towards helping Sakhi community members being to save and invest in their futures.
  • A robust youth mental health counseling program that amplifies the impact of our existing Youth Program via individual and group sessions.

These, as well as many more service changes oriented toward survivors’ needs at all stages of healing, are key components of our long-term strategy for moving beyond crisis recovery and toward sustained well-being.
