Women’s Programs

 

These programs provide support and outreach to women in our community on literacy, health promotion and education, including the provision of information on domestic violence. Such information is designed to address violence in the lives of women and children in the community, as well as providing culturally-specific counseling services. Educational workshops and seminars on breaking the cycle of violence are conducted. The focus lies on identifying violence in all its forms, and informing women of their rights and available resources.
