About RIVERDALE IMMIGRANT WOMEN'S CENTRE
All services are offered from a holistic perspective that addresses the socio economic barriers encountered by immigrant women and their families. RIWC is committed to supporting and caring for our clients, bearing in mind the marginalizing experience that immigrant women face due to barriers of gender, age, poverty, language, racism and violence. Emphasis is thus placed on the practices of empowerment that include prevention/education strategies, skill and leadership development, and asset building that harnesses prior learning, skills and experience from immigrant communities.
