PICC Member of the Month
The Coalition of African and Caribbean Communities (AFRICOM) was established in 2001 to serve as the umbrella organization to diverse African and Caribbean community-based and faith-based organizations. AFRICOM’s mission is to empower immigrants and refugees to integrate into the social and economic fabric of the Greater Philadelphia area through services that include: business development, health and social services, community livelihood and support, advocacy, leadership training, and immigration legal assistance. Since joining PICC in 2014, AFRICOM has benefited from greater funding sources, leadership trainings, and assistance with its application for accreditation before the Bureau of Immigration Appeal. A year later, AFRICOM was awarded its largest grant ever to expand its immigration-related services and offer informational sessions and legal clinics, doubling the number of people it serves.
