Collateral Repair Project, founded in 2006 to support refugees and impoverished Jordanians in East Amman, runs emergency assistance programs and vibrant community centers in Hashemi Shamali and downtown Amman. The people CRP serves struggle to take care of their basic needs and to rebuild their lives.
CRP’s holistic approach focuses on positive growth and change. We first provide families with emergency assistance and then offer them educational, community building and psychosocial activities through our Family Resource and Community Center. CRP’s programs include computer classes, English lessons, trauma-sensitive yoga, a men’s support group, women’s empowerment workshops, children’s activities, and art workshops. Volunteers from Jordan and abroad run all of the programming at CRP, with many programs led by refugees from CRP’s community. We prioritize hiring staff who are creative problem solvers, hard workers, and actively take initiative to develop our programs and move our work to the forefront of best practice.
