Bringing Communities Together
ANSAR of Pittsburgh was founded as a nonprofit organization in December, 2016. In April 2017 ANSAR was providing services to over 61 refugee and immigrant families. Much of ANSAR’s strength lies in its employees and volunteers who share a common background and experiences with the individuals they are trying to help. We have eight volunteering staff, five board members and more than fifteen volunteers working with our clients.
We as an organization are driven by a desire to build a strong foundation of support and resources for immigrants to integrate and acclimate successfully to their new social roles. We run various programs that range from educational services, social services, events, cultural awareness, immigration services, financial assistance and career development. We strive to promote an understanding and tolerance of cultural differences to the mutual benefit and empowerment of immigrants and their communities.
