African Services Committee and African Communities Together are hosting a free naturalization legal clinic from 5 to 9 pm, Oct. 12, 2015 at African Services' headquarters in Harlem as part of the NY Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs' Citizenship Day 2015 celebration. Attorneys and BIA accredited representatives will provide naturalization consultations and prepare naturalization applications.
Join Us! Help ASC Move to a New HQ in the Bronx.
Please join us as African Services Committee (ASC) raises critical support for our Capital Campaign “#Home4AfricanServices.”
African Services' Supervising Attorney Kate Webster and Co-Executive Director Kim Nichols successfully pushed for a major change in the scope of NYC Ryan-White Funding, according to an announcement released by Public Health Solutions on May 12, 2015, titled "Legal Services for Undocumented Immigrants to Obtain PRUCOL Status," which states:
"Effective March 1, 2015, NYC DOHMH and PHS will allow for reimbursement of immigration matters in Ryan White-funded Legal Services (ADV) programs for the purpose of obtaining PRUCOL (Permanent Residence Under Color of Law) status for undocumented Ryan White clients."
ASC's Founding Father and Co-Executive Director, Asfaha Hadera, cooked up some traditional Ethiopian cuisine at ASC's kitchen in Harlem, May 21st, in preparation for a small dinner in honor of the major supporters of African Services. The event marked ASC's formal announcement of our capital campaign to acquire our own permanent building in 2015.
Over a feast full of delectable dishes and wine, attendees heard about our plans and carried them on for discussion with like-minded individuals to be newly invited into our capital giving circle.
ASC, now in our fourth decade of operations, has grown to become the largest and most sought-out African community service organization in New York City.
