Dedicated to empowering low income Haitian women and their children.

The Association of Haitian Women in Boston is a community-based grassroots organization dedicated to empowering low-income Haitian women and their children. We believe that everyone, regardless of race or sex, should have equal rights, and that women should have unlimited opportunity to develop as individuals, unhampered by social traditions.
