Amal is a registered, non-profit, community-based organization focused on addressing the needs of women and their families affected by domestic abuse.
TO PROVIDE SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE IN A CULTURALLY COMPETENT MANNER TO WOMEN AFFECTED BY DOMESTIC ABUSE IN HOPES OF FOSTERING THEIR WELLBEING AND DEVELOPMENT.
The Amal Centre for Women is an open, inclusive, and welcoming center that collaborates with women to improve their living conditions, develop their independence, and heal the wounds caused by their experience with domestic abuse. The Center offers psychosocial services that respond to the needs of the women, while also conducting community outreach to raise awareness of domestic abuse in ethnocultural communities.
At Amal, we are committed to:
- Promoting the well-being of women and children in a holistic manner, at both the individual and family level
- Serving as an individually-tailored referral center that links the members of various communities to appropriate and relevant services
- Developing effective communication skills within couples to encourage healthy familial environments
- Building bridges with other community groups and organizations that promote similar objectives
- Raising awareness through education in multicultural communities of the rights and responsibilities of women
So What can YOU do?
For many years now, The Amal Center for Women has been lending a helping hand to a community in need - but right now, we need you.
Donations have steadily been decreasing; however, the work Amal does has been steadily increasing, and we lack the means to continue to provide the services that are so essential to the women we meet with every day. We strive to provide quality service that will really influence a change in the lives of the women that trust us with their deepest and most concerning situations.
Consider this our turn to call on you to help us with a concerning situation.

Please take a moment to help us in our plight to continue keeping our doors open and being a staple within the community.
