COVID-19 Resources and Program Updates

As a provider of essential services, AAFSC remains open during the ongoing COVID-19 emergency in New York. We have worked with city and state agencies to move our services to confidential teleconferencing arrangements and remote learning schedules to continue safely serving our vulnerable immigrant and refugee clients.

AAFSC has created comprehensive COVID-19 guides in English, Arabic, Bangla, and Urdu that provides information on how to access resources aimed at supporting New Yorkers during the coronavirus outbreak, including housing assistance, food assistance, and healthcare navigation.
