How We Help
The Coalition developed a culturally and linguistically competent curriculum and conduct Health Education activities to increase awareness and decrease stigma about mental health, physical health and substance abuse in ways that are culturally congruent to the black immigrant community. The program assists communities beyond the core mental health services.
The workshop is designed to address problem community faces in obtaining access to important public services and assistance. These include:
- Medical help
- Securing employment
- Immigration and other legal advice
- Sever poverty/debt various forms of registration (e.g. social security, driver’s license)
- Training (language/vocational)
- Child care parenting skills, and social integration
The impact of selected assessed based training and education project reduce stigma and promote safety, health and well-being in the African descent communities as exhibited the ACPHC data collection.
Making A Difference
We are among the few organizations in Southern California that cater to special populations, such as refugees, asylum seekers, undocumented individuals, and human trafficked African-descent immigrants. Our populations thus represent the full spectrum of the African Diaspora: Ethiopian, Eritrean, Sierra Leonine, Ghanaian, Nigerian, Guinean, Liberian, Cameroonian, Sudanese, Somalian, Kenyaian, Ugandan, and those of Caribbean descent.
