Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower new immigrants with the tools they need to successfully acclimate to the world around them and become active participants in their communities.

Description

The Arab-American Family Support Center (AAFSC) is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization created in 1994 to provide multi-generational social services to marginalized and under-served immigrants and refugees in New York City through programming including:

* Adult Education & Literacy Program

* Youth Program

* Legal Services Program

* Anti-Violence Program

* Preventive Services Program

* Health Program

* Mental Health Initiative

* New Immigrants & Refugee Fund

AAFSC is dedicated to serving all people who seek our services, and over our almost 25 years of service we have developed expertise in providing culturally and linguistically competent, trauma-informed services to the Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian (AMEMSA) immigrant communities of New York City. The youth and families we serve are predominately low-income, have limited proficiency in English, and are recently arrived. Our holistic programming responds to the direct needs of our clients as they adjust to life in the United States.
