African Services Committee
African Services Committee (ASC) is the oldest non-profit serving the African immigrant community in New York City. Established in 1981 by Ethiopian refugees, ASC was initially set up to provide comprehensive resettlement assistance to African refugees and asylum seekers. Today, ASC provides health, housing, legal, educational and self-sufficiency services to African and Caribbean immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers affected by war, poverty, global health disparities, political oppression, and social persecution based on sexual orientation or HIV status. Our programs are designed to meet the basic needs of newcomers, using health as a gateway to immigrant integration and supporting community members to live healthy and productive lives.

The CDF-NY office was founded in 1992 and is dedicated to improving the lives of New York’s children and their families through policy research and analysis, outreach, education and organizing.
