Program Description:

Daya's Education and Outreach Program aims to engage and empower communities to address the issue of domestic violence. Given that domestic violence is a social problem that requires community-based strategies, Daya is dedicated to extending our services beyond the walls of our office, transitional home and boundaries of our client services programs. Daya's Education and Outreach program provides support, education and resources to individuals, families, community advocates, professionals, task forces and religious organizations.   Daya hosts trainings and seminars on domestic violence and other issues critical to the South Asian community. Past seminars have included topics on Drug and Alcohol Abuse Amongst South Asian Youth; Parent-Child communication; Women’s Mental Health; Incest in the South Asian community and Legal Rights.  We have hosted events that increase awareness of family violence, sexual assault and child abuse.  E.g.: Screening of Monsoon Wedding & Namesake.  Daya has also conducted trainings for mainstream organizations and State Agencies about the complexities relating to South Asian families undergoing crisis in the US.   In 2009, Daya initiated its Teen Initiative which would include outreach events with colleges and high school students to address relevant issues. We need young volunteers to take part. The volunteers will be trained through different youth services organizations.   :  As an organization that serves women of diverse religious groups, Daya works closely with religious leaders, faith communities and survivors of domestic violence to better understand the key issues for the survivors in relation to their faiths. Daya works very closely with the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, local Gurwaras and Temples. Daya believes that understanding how religious organizations and communities address domestic violence is essential in providing further support for survivors and enabling a community change to end cycle of violence.   Daya publishes a quarterly e-newsletter to keep the community abreast with current issues .   As a means of reaching out to the community, Daya sets up booths at various community events.

Program: Transitional Housing (GuideStar Exchange,

Budget:

Category:
Human Services
Population Served:
Females, all ages or age unspecified

Program Description:

Transitional housing is a primary and crucial need for women and children experiencing domestic abuse.  Daya established its transitional home - Harmony House in October 2007, for South Asian women and children who are victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault in the Greater Houston area. Daya's transitional home is a place where survivors can initially live safely and have access to shelter, food, advocacy, and other resources to assist them in rebuilding violence-free and independent  lives for themselves and their children.   Daya’s experience with South Asian clients strongly suggests that the South Asian community under-utilizes mainstream services relating to domestic and sexual violence, and mental health services in general.  South Asian clients have culture-specific needs including language, understanding of family systems, religion and food preparation that Daya is uniquely prepared to address.  In addition, most mainstream emergency shelters in Houston, allow victims of abuse to reside in the shelter for up to a period of one month. Our work with survivors of violence over the past 10 years have reflected that after emerging from a situation of abuse, women often need more time to garner their resources to rebuild their lives.   Based on these compeling needs, Daya established its culture-specific transitional house- Harmony Home for South Asian survivors of domestic abuse in October 2007. Clients in Harmony House are able to receive a comprehensive range of services to help meet their goals and empower them to lead an independent life.   At Daya, we believe that every human being has the right to live a life free of violence. We have geared our services towards achieving that goal and aim at making a positive impact on the lives we touch. By providing an alternative to remaining in an abusive situation, we aim to better realize Daya’s goal of empowering women to live abuse-free lives.
