African Cultural Alliance of North America - ACANA


The African Cultural Alliance of North America (ACANA) was founded in 1999 in order to bridge the gap between the African immigrant and the American community. It was incorporated in October 1999 as a response to the overwhelming requests for help by the African refugee, asylee and immigrant community members in dealing with the stressors associated with adjusting to their new community. Agency Mission: “To help refugee and immigrant families access health and other social benefits with special focus on women, children, youth and the elderly in their resettlement process in Pennsylvania; mobilize African cultural artesian, performing and recording artists to create an awareness of the African Culture; promote the preservation of cultural values as well as support artists efforts to promote their own vocations in their new environment.”
