African Services Committee
African Services Committee is a nonprofit organization based in Harlem and dedicated to improving the health and self-sufficiency of the African community in New York City.
Founded in 1981 by Ethiopian refugees to give a helping hand to other newcomers, today African Services is a multiservice agency assisting immigrants, refugees and asylees from across the African Diaspora.
Our programs address the needs of newcomers affected by war, persecution, poverty and disease. We provide health, housing, legal and social services to 10,000 people each year. Staff representing more than 12 countries and speaking twice as many languages provide culturally and linguistically relevant support to this diverse and growing community.
Expanding HIV prevention and access to AIDS treatment and care is central to our mission. African Services has taken this work from Harlem to the frontlines of the global epidemic and now operates four HIV testing and care clinics in Ethiopia.
