PROVIDING CULTURALLY RELEVANT,
Founded by African Immigrants.
For African Immigrants.
Helping OUR COMMUNITY thrive.
ACHD is a solution-oriented organization
that takes a holistic approach to addressing the needs
of the African diaspora in King County, WA.
We walk alongside our clients, working together with them and
our partners to solve community-based problems.
Our goal is to help our community members live lives where they are faced
with the least amount of barriers to success and happiness!
In order for us to help our community, we have to work with many moving parts simultaneously. Our services might change as our community changes, but our areas of focus will remain the same.
donations of food and supplies
legal support and referral services
promotion of economic development
workshops and community events
African immigrants to the U.S. have to navigate new languages, new societal rules and unfamiliar bureaucratic systems. This makes it difficult for them to honestly express their needs.
At ACHD, everything that we do comes from a place of cultural understanding, solidarity and familiarity. Because we share the same story as our community members, we are able to ensure that when they come to us, they can speak for themselves, from their own hearts, rather than having their voices interpreted.
When our clients come to us for help, they know that they are coming to people who they can truly trust to put their wellbeing first.
