The Arab-American Family Support Center (AAFSC) is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization providing culturally and linguistically competent, trauma-informed, multigenerational social services to low-income immigrant and refugee communities across all five boroughs of NYC.  In the face of rising discrimination across the country, AAFSC’s vision is more pressing today than ever: we strive for a just society where all immigrants--including Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian (AMEMSA) populations--can fully partake as Americans. AAFSC initiatives operate across four priority areas--promote, prevent, get ready, and communicate--to promote mental and physical wellbeing and family reunification, prevent gender-based violence and child abuse, prepare families to lead productive lives, and communicate community needs to policymakers.
