What We Do
Many African refugee families, individuals and immigrants do not have the benefit of a support system they identify with when they first arrive and begin the process of resettlement or Community integration in the U.S.A.
Here in Orlando, Central Florida, where we have conducted a brief inquiry, a significant African population clearly express willingness to join hands with the larger local Community and provide an effective support to these families and individuals. Many local leaders and very caring citizens, Africans, and non-Africans, among them older generations of refugee families, wrestled for years with this socio-cultural and economic impasse affecting many African refugees and immigrants.
With their inspiration and support, AFCO was born as an organization that effectively assist these families and individuals in their efforts to successfully integrate the local Community life.
