From all of us at Asian Americans for Equality, we want to wish you a happy holidays and thank you for all you have done in support of our shared mission in 2019. Your support this year helped AAFE:
- Provide access to affordable health care and entitlement benefits for more than 6,600 low-income New Yorkers.
Host four job fairs in Jackson Heights and Flushing for the 2020 U.S. Census, connecting community members with quality temporary employment and ensuring that census workers will reflect the diversity of our community.
Provide 84 small business loans through our affiliate, Renaissance Economic Development Corporation, injecting more than $3 million into the community. Renaissance staff also served more than 500 clients with one-on-one counseling services.
Offer one-on-one homeownership assistance through AAFE Community Development Fund to 161 clients and host homeownership education workshops for 100 community members.
Lease almost 95% of the 231 affordable rental apartments at One Flushing, our new development in Queens, creating a diverse, multigenerational community in the heart of Downtown Flushing.
Move forward with the development of more than 500 new affordable residential units across the city, breaking ground on East Village Homes, securing city approval for an affordable cooperative project in the Chelsea neighborhood and innovating a new model for safe and secure SRO housing in Chinatown.
- Provide nearly 60 seniors at AAFE Care centers in Manhattan and Queens with nutritious meals, social programs, and health screenings.
In 2020, we have ambitious plans to activate our community for the U.S. Census, create a volunteer program, pilot a resident services program in AAFE-managed buildings, build more affordable housing and empower immigrant entrepreneurs across New York City.
But we cannot do these things without your support. Every dollar you contribute strengthens our community development and advocacy programs for Asian Americans and all of those in need.
