City of Fremont
The City of Fremont has partnered with the Afghan Coalition to provide Social Services in the form of Crises Intervention Services, Basic Needs Services and Strengthening Services for Afghan immigrants and refugee children, youth and adult community members who require immediate, emergency assistance to provide stability in their lives as they seek to become independent and self-sufficient. The City also
provides Community Development Block Grant funds in support of our Micro-Enterprise Program that introduces entrepreneurship and financial literacy to this same population seeking to develop their own business.
County of Alameda
County funding for Preventive Education Intervention Services to the Underserved Limited English Population of Afghans in Southern Alameda County has helped Afghan Coalition to address mental health issues in the community due to prior traumas suffered as refugees. In addition County Refugee Resettlement funds have supported referral and support services to isolated elders in our community. County has also provided educational and support services for the Afghan immigrant, refugee and asylees communities.
Kaiser Permanente’s community involvement uniquely pairs grant funding with nearly 70 years of clinical expertise, medical research, and volunteerism to support prevention-focused, evidence-based programs that expand access to care, create healthy environments and advance health knowledge. Our Kaiser Permanente grant of $30,000 that started April 1, 2017 and carried over through March 31, 2018 helped more people in the Afghan community of Southern Alameda County get access to the resources they needed to lead a healthy life with support for our Domestic Violence Prevention Program. Thank you to our partner, Kaiser Permanente!
