Pars Equality Center is non profit, NGO located in the city of Sherman Oaks, Ca. The mission of Pars Equality Center is to offer and solicit social and legal support for all members of the Iranian American community, including refugees, asylees and immigrants. Pars’ Social Services Department has helped many, and in particular recent immigrants, through its growing breadth of programs. A partial list of these services include: English as Second Language (ESL) classes, parenting workshops, job fairs and job training, children’s programs, assistance navigating through the new social structure, medical system, school system and providing referrals to outside agencies for domestic violence and other needs. Further, a very important aspect of our Social Services Department involves the Emergency Assistance Fund, which provides basic needs to recent immigrants who are in a dire situation.
The Legal Department at Pars provides critical initial research and guidance in all areas of the law to members of the community who do not know where to turn, or may not have the resources to find help. It is astounding how many of our countrymen still face issues of discrimination and/or harassment from employers, landlords, etc. Pars offer more than 6 classes per week and two monthly workshops. All of the the classes and workshops are free of charge. We have more than 100 clients who benefits from our services on the monthly basis.
