As an organization serving low-income immigrant and refugee families, AAFSC has always understood the precarious conditions that undermine access to stable housing. In recent years, need for enhanced housing support has noticeably increased while sufficiently accessible resources remain scarce. In response to this need, the AAFSC Research Institute conducted a comprehensive Housing Needs Assessment survey with over 350 families to better understand the nature and severity of this housing crisis.

For a deep dive on these important issues, tune in to our Housing Needs Panel on January 20th at 2PM, where policymakers, housing experts, and community champions will discuss a path forward for NYC’s immigrant communities. You can RSVP for the Zoom event, here.
