Adbar Ethiopian Women’s Alliance was launched in 1994 — the first and only Ethiopian women’s organization in the area. Adbar, the only female-headed organization of its kind in Massachusetts, focuses on personal, social, economic and cultural growth. The organization provides empowerment programs and services, linkage to other providers, as well as legislative and, judicial advocacy to meet the needs of Ethiopian and other immigrant women and families.
Adbar provides empowerment programs, services, and links to other providers to meet the needs of newly arrived immigrants and refugees as well as homeless, low-income, and at-risk individuals and families.
We offer skill-building training, economic and social empowerment programs, and a range of related support services and resources. Adbar welcomes participants and volunteers from all cultures who are interested in strengthening and empowering immigrants and low-income women and girls.
Adbar is committed to empower, strengthen, and enhance the status of immigrant and other marginalized women and girls through community organizing, advocacy, and collaboration with organizations that have shared objectives and common concerns. Our mission is to encourage them to become agents of change, and to grow both as individuals and as active members of our community and the community at large. Second, is to assist newly arrived immigrants and refugees, as well as homeless, low-income and at-risk individuals and families, by providing services and marketable skills to overcome short-term crisis.
Adbar Ethiopian Women’s Alliance offers a safe and welcoming place for immigrant and other low-income women. Adbar actively collaborates with other women’s and human rights organizations, as well as with businesses and community institutions, to create innovative programs in the pursuit of excellence on a sound fiscal basis.
