Terms and Conditions
The mission of Amaanah Refugee Services is to be a leader in providing resettlement assistance to the immigrant and refugee community within Houston. Our aim is to create a support system that welcomes new Americans through a holistic approach, dealing not only with the financial strains of resettlement, but also the emotional and educational challenges that come with living in a new land and to ensure equal access to opportunities for economic success and social prosperity.
Amaanah Refugee Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax-exempt and zakat-eligible.
Since 2008, Amaanah has grown from its humble beginnings of distributing food to now feature the following programs:
- YES. Youth Empowerment Services reaches out to provide language and education assistance in the schools with the Teach360 initiative. Partnering with school districts, our tutors work directly with students in making the transition from learning in their native language to learning in English.
- Women’s Empowerment. Our assistance to women-run households includes education in logistical and financial matters relative to living in Houston as well as home transformations that provide safe, clean and stable living for deserving families.
- Amaanah Lions. The championship soccer team comprised entirely of refugee and immigrant young men builds confidence, trust and friendship on and off the soccer field.
- Big Sister Circle. Focusing on a holistic approach to resettlement, this support group for women addresses the emotional challenges facing our women and provides an outlet to share and learn from each other.
We are committed to providing financial accountability and transparency to our donors, advocates, sponsors, and supporters. Our sources of support include:
- Individual giving
- Corporate support
- Special events
Amaanah Refugee Services establishes partnerships with those who share our commitment to welcoming new Americans and providing a path to economic freedom and social prosperity.
