NEW MEXICO ASIAN FAMILY CENTER CELEBRATES TEN YEARS IN THE COMMUNITY

Albuquerque, NM – New Mexico Asian Family Center (NMAFC), the only agency in the state providing culturally tailored programs and services to the Pan-Asian community, is celebrating its tenth anniversary. Last year, NMAFC supported over 1,500 individuals representing over 20 different ethnic groups from 7 NM counties. Services were provided in 7 languages, including Vietnamese, Mandarin, Japanese, Thai, Arabic, Taiwanese, and Burmese for issues such as domestic violence, sexual assault, problem gambling, and for general navigation support.

Reflecting national trends, New Mexico’s Asian and Pacific Islander community is the fastest growing in terms of percentage growth, having seen an increase of 46.5% from 2000 to 2010. Please join us for a night of reflection with distinguished community leaders, performers from the local Asian community, and a look forward into the future with our community. The celebration will be held on August 27th, 2016, at the Albuquerque Garden Center (10120 Lomas Blvd NE 87112) from 5:30-8:00pm.

About NMAFC: Formed in 2006 in response to the lack of culturally tailored services for the Pan-Asian community, NMAFC provides case management, counseling, and legal consultation and representation for those needing general immigration support, problem gambling treatment, and those who have been a victim of a crime, such as domestic violence or sexual assault. We work on civic engagement initiatives, provide multigenerational family programming, and believe in building cross-racial networks to better identify and address health disparities through an anti-oppression lens. Our mission is to provide culturally sensitive programs and services creating a Pan-Asian community that advocates for and supports itself.
