What We Do

Our community is a unique intersection of two groups: Asian Americans in Utah--representing our heritage community--and marginalized refugees, asylum seekers, and human trafficking victims--representing the community we serve. 

We work to help victims of human trafficking, refugees, and asylum seekers achieve outcomes of substantive improvement, self-sufficiency, and thriving. Our work is trauma-informed and linguistically sensitive, delivered by specialized staff who journey with each individual and family as they transition to life in Utah.


Latest News and Updates

We are looking for volunteers to help setup and work during this year's Utah Asian Festival at the Utah State Fairpark on June 8th, 2024.

Join us for an informative and empowering Open House Event where we tackle crucial topics affecting our refugee communities and families. Our goal is to equip refugee parents with valuable knowledge and resources to raise resilient and thriving children.

We are excited to announce that Kamala Ganesh, LCSW, has joined AAU’s Behavioral Health team as a therapist. Kamala graduated from West High School in Salt Lake City, attended the University of Virginia for undergrad before returning to Utah completing her Master’s Degree from the University of Utah in 2020.

Thank you for all the volunteers who came out on Saturday, February 17th to help us clean, organize, and prepare our Major Street building to receive in-kind donations for refugees, immigrants, and our human trafficking victims.
