Afghan Wellness Program
We are a community-based organization, organized by active Afghan community members and our goal is to help support and provide services for Afghan and other immigrants in this area. We have a Board of Directors that makes all significant and important decisions for the Afghan Coalition.
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.
