The African Immigrant and Refugees Foundation (AIRF) assists Africans who come to the United States by supporting their various needs - cultural, linguistic, employment, mental health, and their desire to fit in.
Immigrants and refugees face a host of cultural and linguistic challenges in their new countries. It's not any different here in the United States. Immigrants have to work extra hard to fit in - and there are never enough individuals or organizations to assist in this complex process.
The African Immigrant and Refugee Foundation was established to help with this process. It assists Africans who come to the United States by supporting their various needs - cultural, linguistic, employment, mental health, and their desire to fit in.
The Foundation achieves this mission through multicultural group and individual counseling, survival skills training, African cultural awareness education, cultural competence training for care givers and the African population itself, referrals and consultation. Contributions from our diverse Board of Directors, donors, staff, the immigrants and refugees themselves, and collaboration with the surrounding community provide us with the shoulders on which we stand.
The mission of the African Immigrant and Refugees Foundation (AIRF) is to facilitate the effective transition of African immigrants to American society and to support their sustainbale integration into their new Homeland.
