12 Scopus citations


To help low-income women immigrants to Israel from Ethiopia and the former Soviet Union adapt, an interdisciplinary team prepared and conducted a community program whose goals were to empower the women and help them to become involved in the community and to become leaders. The outcomes of the project were favorable. All the women became involved in community activities, were empowered, and developed their leadership abilities and a sense of community belonging. Only their sense of policy control did not undergo any significant change.
