Since 2008, Kiran has empowered victims/survivors by providing access to information, education, and other necessary social and economic support that best reflects each person's interests and needs.


Our Mission

Kiran's mission is to end the cycle of abuse and to serve and empower South Asian victims of domestic violence in North Carolina by providing culturally specific services and comprehensive economic, social and community resources.

Knowing that there is someone to reach out to in times of crisis is like seeing a β€˜ray’ of hope. Kiran has been very supportive in my fight against domestic violence. The organization has helped me become fearless, bold, and capable in taking action towards injustice.
