About AMOR

 Our Impact

At AMOR, our mission is to improve the health status of the communities we serve. We are a community based non-profit that strives to ensure equality. We build alliances with other organizations working in areas of concentrated poverty to create a safety-net of medical, social and youth development resources, tailored to the specific needs of each community that we serve.

AMOR Builds Healthy Communities Worldwide

Whether across the globe, or in our own Central Valley, AMOR changes lives by:

  • Improving the quality of life
  • Cultivating Dignity, Empowerment and Opportunity
  • Targeting underserved communities in areas of concentrated poverty
  • Providing quality health care and health education for all, regardless of their ability to pay
  • Mobilizing people and resources
  • Tailoring programs to the unique culture and needs of the population

Why Health?

Healthy Families = Thriving Communities 

An investment in quality, affordable healthcare & health education not only enriches individual lives, it creates economic benefits for communities. According to the Prevention Institute, for every dollar spent on wellness & preventative healthcare, we can expect to see a 5-to-1 return on investment within five years.

 

Where We Work

Globally and Locally

Our cornerstone project which began in 2008, includes a hospital and ten clinics in Kabul, Afghanistan. AMOR’s “Together We Will!” campaign aims to bring together community benefit organizations for an alliance to bring much needed medical, social and youth services in west Fresno County. AMOR has moved into the pre-construction phase of the “Together We Will!” campaign. Developing this alliance launches AMOR’s first domestic project which includes the construction of a facility in Mendota, California. In this facility CBO’s will offer after hours preventative and specialty health care with comprehensive wraparound social services, including a safe and secure environment for developing youth.
