Services for Foreign Spouses (New Immigrants) and Their Families

In providing shelter service for women and children who suffered in domestic violence we found that ‘foreign spouse’ victims were increasing rapidly. ‘Foreign spouse’ refers to women who immigrated to Taiwan through
marriage, not only lacking resources but?also facing unfriendly environments without sufficient legal support. In addition, they can speak little Chinese and do not know where to ask for help, which add to the difficulty of
reaching our social workers.In order to help these new immigrant women develop their new lives in Taiwan and to ease the
tension and challenge in marriage, we set up centers in New Taipei City West and East Centers,
Taichung Center, Yilan Center, and Kaohsiung to provide services for foreign spouses and their families
in family relationship maintenance, culture adaption, language learning, and parenthood education.
