Programs & Services
ANSAR meets with each family/individual to understand the needs, set a plan to meet such needs.
We work with families resettled in Allegheny County to find affordable housing, provide furniture and household items, enroll families in health care services and assist refugee and immigrant families with rent, enrollment in public schools, and educational programs.
In 2022, we became a Preferred Community organization. Preferred Communities (PC), are funded by The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). The goal of the PC program is to provide intensive case management to the most vulnerable refugees. As a Preferred Community, we welcomed 73 Afghan individuals into Allegheny County by meeting them at the airport upon arrival to Pennsylvania. We also provided them with housing, furnishing, school enrollment, and welfare enrollment.
We continued in 2023 with the assistance of an additional 82 Afghan individuals and 48 Ukrainian individuals.
