Women’s Empowerment Services (WE)
Women’s Empowerment Services (WE) providing life skills to female immigrants through life skills solutions.
The Women’s Empowerment (WE) program works with women from various backgrounds to achieve stability within the home. Through WE Amaanah has provided supplemental rental assistance, ESL classes and employment assistance, food assistance, home transformations, and assistance for expecting mothers. This program seeks to help migrant women connect with available resources, attain gainful employment, and develop a strong social support system to aid in community integration.
Initially, the Women’s Empowerment program started with the client base, however it continues to grow. Low-income families looking to acclimate to their new community, improve their English language and eventually find a job have found WE to be a strong foundation of support as they build confidence and a pathway to earning a living wage. Through Amaanah’s refugee services, new Americans become more self-dependent as they adapt to their life in Houston.
