ASC turns 40!


Celebrating 40 years of service
40 years ago, African Services Committee started in a Bronx basement apartment by Ashafa Hadera, an Ethiopian refugee who gave a helping hand to other African newcomers. Fast forward today, our Harlem based NGO has expanded to serve over 12,000 people every year in New York City and Ethiopia. African Services Committee reflects on 40 years of accomplishments and shares stories of what has not changed: our commitment to assist immigrants, refugees and asylees from across the African and Caribbean Diaspora and beyond, in establishing themselves and finding community. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin for more updates.
