African Cultural Alliance of North America Inc. (ACANA)
Social Services in Southwest Philly Serving African and Caribbean Immigrants
The African Cultural Alliance of North America Inc. (ACANA) is a non-profit agency founded on a mission to provide culturally sensitive social services, arts and cultural programs, legal services, community engagement and development programs and other services to African and Caribbean immigrants in the United States.
- ACANA’s objectives are to not only assist new residents in their adjustment and resettlement, but to help them become active participants in their new environments.
- In doing so, ACANA strongly believes in working with people of all backgrounds to build a better community.
- Our moto of “bridging the gap” represents ACANA’s continuous effort to serve as a connector between the various cultures, ethnic groups, religions and peoples of the African diaspora.
