AMANI Family Services (formerly known as Crime Victim Care of Allen County)

The name Amani Family Services provides a strong opportunity to emphasize multicultural family services with a word, “amani,” which means peace in Kiswahili and aspirations or wishes in Arabic. It is also a recognition of the language spoken by the founder Dr. Saneta Maiko originally from Kenya.

Amani Family Services is a private nonprofit organization serving more than 500 families and individuals from around the world who have made Allen County their home. It’s one of the largest nonprofit agencies serving immigrants and refugees in the area, offering 3 programs, and employing around 45 multilingual staff members and contractors. Amani Family Services has updated its mission and vision as well:


We partner with immigrant and refugee families and the community to promote safety, encourage personal growth, and foster a spirit of belonging. 

Immigrant and refugee families and the community working together to build a secure, vibrant, and cohesive society.
