With a grant in the Foundation's Health field-of-interest, the NM Asian Family Center offers mental health services to Pan-Asian, Middle Eastern and African immigrants and refugees who have experienced trauma due to war in their home countries, displacement at refugee camps and resettlement.
Through their holistic service model, the NM Asian Family Center extends beyond mental health counseling and includes job placement, workforce development and transitional housing services for immigrants.
"We envision a state that provides equitable access to resources and services to limited English proficient families so that they have the ability to thrive within our local community and partake in the systems that impact them.
Our dream is to operate from within a large, multi-use community space in the International District that has room for our community to safely gather to share story, engage in art and performance, participate in culturally specific healing circles, and to receive direct services."
