Armenian Women’s Welfare Association

Serving Our Community Since 1915

Armenian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA) is a not-for-profit organization that has been in existence for over 100 years.

We are dedicated to serving elders and others both here and abroad through the sponsorship of direct-care elder service programs.

AWWA’s Vision

AWWA believes that honoring elders is at the very foundation of great family and great community.

Drawing on the rich history, generosity of spirit and work ethic of the Armenian community, we aim to ensure the good health and well-being of all Armenian elders and others, wherever they may be.
