Welcome to the Pars Equality Center. As I reflect on the past 12 months, I can say it has been a tremendous year for Pars. We have remained true to our community-based philosophy while scaling our programming and growing the client base to which we cater. We continue to experiment and introduce new types of services, and we do so now with a successful six-year track record behind us. With your support, we are refusing to rest on our laurels and still maintain the agility of a start-up: quickly and effectively responding to client needs as they arise, and anticipating challenges before they appear. Help us celebrate our community’s success. Come along with us on the journey and join us as we carve out this unchartered territory.
Discover Our Programs
Pars places great emphasis on swiftly responding to the community’s needs. Its programming spans multiple categories, including social/legal services and counsel; job readiness training and placement; mentorship; younger generations/senior support. During any given week, classes offered include English as a Second Language (ESL); Citizenship classes; and basic computer training. Pars represents a welcoming place for every member and age group of the community, and it is the only organization of its kind offering such a centralized and coordinated facility addressing every need of its participants.
As a community organization, Pars is reliant on the active participation and dedication of its members. We encourage you to visit us, participate, listen and engage with the community and get involved. Whether you would like to join the ranks of our sponsors and Founding Members, become a mentor to a highly-skilled newcomer, volunteer to chaperone one of the Silver Club's excursions, or simply lend a helping hand during one of our many cultural or fundraising events, we are always looking to grow the community's reach and numbers.
