About African Services Committee

In 1981, Asfaha Hadera — an Ethiopian refugee — founded African Services Committee (ASC) in the basement of his apartment in the Bronx. Today, this Harlem-based agency now serves thousands of people every year in New York City and Ethiopia.

ASC is a multi-service human rights agency dedicated to assisting immigrants, refugees, and asylees from across the African Diaspora. Programs address the needs of newcomers affected by war, persecution, poverty, and other global health inequities. ASC provides health, housing, legal, social welfare, education, nutrition, and advocacy services to more than 12,000 people in New York City and Ethiopia. Staff representing more than 20 countries and speaking over 27 languages support this diverse and growing community.

Expanding access to HIV prevention, testing, and treatment is central to ASC’s mission. ASC has taken this work from Harlem to the frontlines of the global pandemic and now operates two health and community development centers in Ethiopia. The agency is committed to challenging stigma and discrimination at all levels and supporting the individuals, families, and communities most impacted by HIV. Combined with life-saving treatment, this care and support has transformed thousands of lives.
