About African Services Committee

African Services Committee is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health and self-sufficiency of the African and Caribbean immigrant communities.

We provide health, housing, legal, educational, and social services to thousands of newcomers each year in New York City with a focus on health promotion and disease prevention, care and support.

Areas of immigration legal service: U Visas, Citizenship, SIJS, Consular Processing, Deportation/removal defense, TPS, Family petitions, FOIAs, Waivers, DACA, VAWA, asylum, and medical deferred action.

Limitations on services: We provide free limited immigration services to individuals living with HIV/AIDS, to the African Diaspora through our Black Immigrant Engagement Initiative, and to certain low-income New Yorkers. In addition, we provide free immigration services to eligible lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) immigrants in asylum cases and removal proceedings.

We also provide a broad range of immigration and naturalization services through our low-fee immigration clinic called the Immigrant Community Law Center.

We serve the following area:

  • Bronx County
  • Kings (Brooklyn) County
  • New York (Manhattan) County
  • Queens County
  • Richmond (Staten Island) County

We also provide interpreters for Wolof, Bambara, and Soninke.

This organization is accessible by wheelchair.
