Founded in July of 1985 through the integration of Cambodian, Ethiopian, Laotian and Vietnamese refugee organizations into a Mutual Assistance Association, the Alliance For Multicultural Community Services has expanded to serve individuals of all ethnicities, both refugees and low-income residents.
“They create jobs for refugees there at the Multicultural Community Center,” says Ruchi Mukherjee Founder/Editor of Lights Camera Action, a media house that helps promote such causes. “Being a fashionista, lifestyle host I am constantly on the go and looking to wear unique designs at galas and parties,” explains Ruchi.
Keeping that notion in mind the LCA host explored the tailoring service at the Center and has since sought to promote this niche, as quality tailoring services are rare in Houston and yet very much in demand. “They are all refugees working as seamstresses creating some exclusive designs and also working with some local designers,” says Yani Rose Keo, Executive Director at Alliance.
The Alliance promotes the well-being of refugees, immigrants and low-income residents of Harris County in order to provide a better quality of life by making them self-sufficient.
