Arab-American Family Support Center
The Arab-American Family Support Center (AAFSC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-sectarian organization. Established in 1994, AAFSC is the first and largest Arabic-speaking trauma-informed social service agency in New York City. AAFSC is headquartered in Brooklyn, home to the highest number of New York City’s recent Arab immigrants. As a settlement house and member of United Neighborhood Houses (UNH), AAFSC has taken the initiative in providing culturally, linguistically and religiously sensitive services to members of immigrant communities throughout the five boroughs. We serve nearly 6,000 low-income people each year through seven main programs: the Preventive Services Program, Adult Education Program, Youth Program, Legal Services Program, Health Program, Anti-Violence Program and Disaster Relief Services Program.
