Community Counsellors Initiative

Policy Meets Practice

AFAHO addresses an unmet need among members of the African and Caribbean immigrant and refugee communities in the greater Philadelphia.

About

The African Family Health Organization (AFAHO) addresses an unmet need among members of the African and Caribbean immigrant and refugee communities in the greater Philadelphia area who experience difficulties accessing health and human services due to cultural, geographic, linguistic, and other barriers.

The Policy Meets Practice grant will support the unique mental health needs of women and families which have emerged because of the pandemic. Throughout 2020, AFAHO facilitated regular community wellness conversations using a conference line; community members could anonymously join these calls to learn about new health or wellness information, share their experiences, and ask questions. The calls revealed a need in the community for psychosocial support in the challenging home landscape of the pandemic. Concerns about domestic violence, mental health, child rearing, and significant life stressors revealed a need for professional counsel on these calls and a pipeline to professional help for our clients. Thus, with the funds received from this grant, AFAHO will contract clinicians with Arabic, Kiswahili, and French language skills to provide technical expertise to community members on these calls and individual counselling sessions as needed.
