Our Team

The Amudim Promise

Amudim is dedicated to serving community members in times of crisis. Founded on the pillars of kindness, compassion, and dignity, Amudim functions as a confidential resource center that provides meaningful assistance, enduring support, and direct referrals for individuals and families impacted by sexual abuse, neglect, addiction, and other crisis-related matters. We foster change and growth by raising awareness and implementing educational programs within our community.

Amudim not only provides pillars of support, but  also empowers others to become pillars of support.
