Armenian Relief Society of Western USA
We are an international, non-profit organization dedicated to offering education, social services, family services, culture and humanitarian aid to those in need. The ARS serves the social, health and welfare needs of the community; promotes the Armenian language and culture; provides financial assistance to students; assists victims of natural disasters and wars; fosters the spirit of good fellowship among ARS members and community; and advocates human rights and social change in civil society. Our goal is to provide humanitarian assistance on a local and international scale – to Armenians and non-Armenians alike. We accomplish this goal through our various programs, which play a pivotal role in supporting schools, sponsoring orphans, coming to the aid of countless needy families, as well as mobilizing members to provide disaster relief efforts.
