Our Goal

What we do & how we started

For many years, Afghan Coalition has been the voice for various under-served groups in the Afghan community. Afghan Coalition has been providing domestic violence classes, and various services for the immigrant and refugee population. Services through the TEAM and CHANGES program have been served many individuals and families by listening to their needs and providing to them and connecting them with appropriate services.

The Afghan Wellness Project has been advocating for the need for mental health services for the Afghan community, particularly refugees and those who have recently arrived in the U.S.
