The Hamdard Center is a Multilingual, Multi-cultural Social & Health Service Agency Dedicated to Serving the South Asian, Middle Eastern, and the Bosnian Communities in Illinois. Our Mission is to promote physical and emotional health and psychological well being of the individuals and families by offering hope, help, and healing.
Hamdard Center has been providing culturally tailored multilingual services to domestic violence victims since 1993. The goal of Hamdard’s Domestic Violence Program is: To incorporate the principles of empowerment, preserve the victims' dignity, and foster their sense of worth. The program maximizes victims’ safety and promotes and encourages victims’ efforts to regain control over their lives. The program achieves its goal by: 1) preventing and reducing domestic violence and abuse as well as promoting a life free from violence; 2) increasing the safety and protection of domestic violence victims from our target populations; and 3) promoting self-sufficiency and independence of domestic violence victims from our target populations.
