Providing services to migrating women

Supporting needs of female migrants
Assisting women immigrants
Facilitating obstacles that meet women as a result of migration within one country or between countries, or providing these women with the necessary services for resettlement.
The increase in the number of immigrants and refugees to the USA has resulted in the need for culturally sensitive programmes for certain groups of women. The Asian Women's Shelter in Sand Francisco, California, has developed specialized services in twelve Asian languages and dialects. Such programmes have been key to reaching large numbers of refugee and immigrant women who are among the most isolated and vulnerable.
