Growing Together: Amani Family Services Capital Campaign
Amani's 5,000 square foot new office will provide space to accommodate services to a growing diverse community of immigrant and refugee families and individuals in Allen County.
Amani Family Services is the only organization in Allen County whose mission is devoted solely to the service of immigrant and refugee families, in partnership with the state of Indiana and the community. When participating in services, immigrants and refugees work to improve their safety conditions, seek opportunities for personal growth, and grow their spirit of belonging.
Amani seeks to raise $272,000 to renovate its new location at 5104 N Clinton, which has been generously donated by Parkview Health. Investing in Amani's capital campaign will enhance long term fundamental services and bring value to the entire community.
How Will This Benefit The Community?
FAMILY - The new building will allow Amani to serve families better through new visitation rooms, play and cooking space for parents and children, and increased privacy. The environment will be trauma-informed allowing for sensitive delivery of care to survivors of trauma.
COLLABORATION - Local agencies will be invited to share the space to connect to non-English speaking community members (for example, Amani will support the establishment of Alcoholics Anonymous groups in Karen, Burmese, and other languages).
TRAINING - The new training room will allow for more education sessions on cross-cultural communication, violence prevention, and integration for residents, agencies, and businesses.
COMMUNITY - The new building will be the sole location in Allen County dedicated to immigrants and refugees of all backgrounds. It will be the central location for all immigrants and refugees to connect, find resources, and learn more about life in the United States.
