Iranian American Society

Founded by a group of compassionate women in 1991, the Iranian American Association (IAS) is now California's most revered resource for domestic violence of victims of Iranian and Near-Eastern descent and for recent Iranian immigrants arriving in the U.S. without any means.

Our Mission is

To raise awareness of women’s issues and provide assistance to victims of domestic violence and people in need. To award need- and merit-based scholarships to graduating high school students and current college students. To preserve and promote Iranian culture and customs and to present them to the community at large to foster better understanding.
