JRF is excited to share more about the Queen Rania Family and Child Center (QRFCC)!
The Queen Rania Family and Child Center (QRFCC) established in 2005, is a community center, located in Jabal Al Nasser, an underprivileged region of Eastern Amman. The center delivers child safety and protection activities in an area with a population of more than 250,000 inhabitants of Jordanian, Palestinian, and Syrian origins as well as minorities from Iraq, Sudan, and Egypt; approximately 50% of which are under the age of eighteen. Today, the QRFCC uses a community-based model to provide comprehensive services such as: art therapy for women and children, awareness raising sessions on child abuse, youth camps, daycare, and courses on positive child rearing. The QRFCC is also home to the toll-free 110 helpline for families and children, which links concerned callers to consultation, counseling, and referral services on child related issues. By assessing community needs and offering holistic services, the QRFCC empowers women, children, and families to become agents of positive change both at home and in their local communities.
