Haitian-American Community Coalition

Founded in 1982, the Haitian-American Community Coalition (HCC) is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit community-based service provider (and originally a network coordinator of eight Haitian community centers in the New York Metropolitan Area that help U.S. Haitian immigrants gain self sufficiency).

While our primary focus is Caribbean- and African-Americans, we welcome all community members. 

In 2013, we served 10,000 clients through immigration/refuge assistance, ESL and literacy, citizenship education, public education via local Haitian media outlets (a weekly radio show on HIV/AIDS reaches 130,000 individuals), housing placement, job readiness, health and wellness education, PLWHA housing, HIV/AIDS education prevention, a variety of AIDS-related case management, mental health services, substance abuse counseling, parenting skills, domestic violence prevention, teen pregnancy prevention, drop-out prevention, cultural enrichment, youth services, family counseling and education, a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Center, and more. 

Services are provided in English, French, Haitian Creole, and Spanish. 

A 32-year service history has established us as a spokes organization and information source on Haitian communities in the U.S. and Haiti for Federal, State and City agencies, hospitals, universities, public schools, and research groups. (Source: About Us - HCC/Website )
