AAFSC is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization established in 1994 to empower immigrants and refugees with the tools they need to acclimate to the world around them and become active participants in their communities.
AAFSC works across four key priority areas: Promote, Prevent, Get Ready, and Communicate in order to achieve our ultimate goal of strengthening families. We promote mental and physical wellbeing, healthy relationships, and all forms of community wellness. We promote family reunification, restorative justice, equity, and fair policies. We prevent child abuse and work to end domestic and gender based violence. We get families ready to learn, work, succeed, give back, and lead healthy, productive lives. And, we amplify the voices of marginalized and under-resourced communities and share our knowledge widely to ensure the greatest possible impact.
While our services are open to anyone in need, we have gained expertise in providing culturally and linguistically competent, trauma-informed services to marginalized and under-resourced Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian immigrant and refugee communities.
