The North Carolina African Services Coalition (NCASC) is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) non profit organization that provides services to refugees and asylees who resettle in Guilford County. Originally founded in 1997 as a community support organization for Greensboro’s African community, NCASC has since become a full-fledged refugee resettlement agency through grants with the NC State Refugee Office and the Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC). As such, NCASC is one of several organizations responsible for resettling newly arriving refugee families from all over the world into the Greensboro area. This includes assisting families in acclimating to their new environment, and tapping into a well-developed network of resources to achieve success in the areas of employment, education, finances, health, and more.
NCASC received the Greensboro Kwanzaa Collective’s 2013 Nguzo Saba Community Champion Award. Because of the outstanding commitment the Board, staff and volunteer at the NCASC have demonstrated to serving our community and making the city of Greensboro a better place to live and work, the Greensboro Kawanzaa Collective publicly acknowledged our hard work and dedication. NCASC received the Ujima – Collective Work & Responsibility award on Saturday, December 28, 2013 during the fourth annual Kwanzaa Celebration at the International Civil Rights Center and Museum located at 134 South Elm Street in Greensboro.
