Jordan River Foundation (JRF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established in 1995 with a focus on child safety and community empowerment. It has been a major player in Jordan’s social and economic development, bringing forth over 20 years of experience to local community empowerment and child safety. JRF has also been supporting homegrown solutions that engage Jordanians and help them address local challenges. Most importantly, JRF places the wellbeing of children at the center of its development initiatives.
Dar Al Aman was established in 2000 as a temporary therapeutic center, offering protection and rehabilitation services for abuse victims referred by government agencies and law enforcement divisions working in child protection in Jordan.
Dar Al Aman temporarily accommodates up to 40 children every year, from infancy to early adolescence, until a safe home and child friendly environment is secured, within their nuclear or extended families. In cases where this is not possible, children are transferred to a long-term care home. Regular family visitations are conducted by specialized staff following placement, to assess family dynamics and design a treatment plan in line with the child’s therapy program.
The center serves physically, emotionally, and sexually abused children and their families, in addition to victims of neglect; offering comprehensive services including academic, medical and psychosocial care.
Children are supervised for at least one year following their reunion with their families, during which social workers monitor and assess reintegration and progress, in addition to other protective factors pertaining to child safety and sound parenting.
In an effort to develop, sustain and expand its operations across the Kingdom, Dar Al Aman currently operates under the umbrella of the Jordanian Ministry of Social Development. JRF continues to offer case management support to Dar Al Aman, in addition to referring child abuse cases to the center.
