Established in 2005, the Arab-American Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS) of WNY is a non-profit organization that was created to promote understanding and the bonds of faith and friendship between members of the Arab American community and people of other nationalities and cultures living within America. Our organization is non-sectarian, serving families and individuals of any faith or ethnicity. The conception of ACCESS WNY was to create a nonprofit organization with the main focus to assist families living in the Greater Buffalo Region. Many of the services offered by the organization are utilized by the region’s immigration population, however, our services are meant for immigrant and non-immigrant families alike.
