Who Are We?
Ruth's House is a collage of many agencies, government and community leaders and groups working together to protect the African community.
To break the cycle of abuse in the African Community.
To provide support for the whole family.
Everyone is a victim.
Everyone needs help.
Family is the bedrock of any African community and is very important throughout society. The family consists of not only the nuclear family (mother, father, children) but also members of their extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and others).
The African community is an extension of the family. The members act as both an economic and emotional network and provide individuals with a sense of who they are and where they belong.
Africa is a nation that has an incredibly rich cultural heritage that is varied, depending on the country. The continent is home to diverse populations, each with its own tribes, languages and cultural differences.
