Mission Statement

The Arab American Association of New York is a not for profit culturally sensitive social service agency located in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. AAANY was established post 9/11 in response to the needs of the growing Arab American community in New York City. AAANYâ  s mission is to provide the Arab community with culturally sensitive services that will help them to adjust to their new homeland. Since opening the doors of the Association in December 2001, it has served over 2000 individuals, 85% of whom are women and children.

Description

The mission of the Arab American Association of New York is to provide services to Arab families which include basic social services (case management), access to healthcare for both documented and undocumented individuals, free legal services and guidance for immigration issues, domestic violence, and advocacy services, bilingual monthly educational (medical and psycho educational) workshops, a growing after-school tutoring program for children grades K-12, and a women's literacy program, as well as cultural events throughout the year. The association provides these services in a holistic approach that allows the community to access these and other referral services. While the Association focuses its services on Arab-Americans, it will turn away no low-income or immigrant person seeking help. Its youth programs are open to any interested child and its cultural events are open to the general public.
