Our Goal
For many years, Afghan Coalition has been the voice for various under-served groups in the Afghan community. Afghan Coalition has been providing domestic violence classes, and various services for the immigrant and refugee population. Services through the TEAM and CHANGES program have been served many individuals and families by listening to their needs and providing to them and connecting them with appropriate services.

The Afghan Wellness Project has been advocating for the need for mental health services for the Afghan community, particularly refugees and those who have recently arrived in the U.S. 

The need is great:

  • 95% of clients are below the poverty line

  • 87% of Afghan women in Afghanistan suffer from Domestic Violence.

  • Unfortunately, Domestic Violence does not stop when they come to the U.S. 

  • 45% of Afghans in the Bay Area suffer from PTSD.

In response to the recent crisis in Afghanistan, Afghan Coalition has focused on the following areas to ensure needs are met for both the new arrivals and our existing clients:

 

  1. Meeting and collaborating with resettlements agencies and other NGO to discuss each agencies programs/duties in an effort to provide more cohesive and efficient services to new arrivals.

  2. Planning collaboration with another service provider to have a presence in the local school districts.

  3. Working closely with PARS, who is providing immigration legal services to local clients wanting to bring family in Afghanistan to the United States. Afghan Coalition staff has assisted with completing the PARS Afghan Support Intake forms both at the office and remotely. Staff is also providing emotional support to the community members requesting assistance with these forms.

  4. Efforts are being made for the Grand National Movement of Afghanistan to organize a World Wide conference in Afghanistan.

  5. Responding to and tracking community emails/phone calls regarding offers to volunteer, provide jobs and/or housing to new arrivals. Referring these resources to other NGO as appropriate.

  6. Trying to find resources to secure an additional 3 months of housing for new arrivals

  7. Providing Cultural Competency training to providers as requested such as Crisis Response of Alameda County.

  8. Offering more workshops and/or support groups to help the local community to process the trauma of the unexpected recent events in Afghanistan and concern for family members.

  9. Finding new sources of funding for assistance with the resettlement efforts of new arrivals

  10. Responding to and accommodating media requests when available.

  • Secure a warehouse for a clothes drive for new arrivals
