Alliance for MultiCultural Community Service kicks off Celebrations for their Upcoming Gala
Radio Milano in CityCenter was bustling with philanthropists who gathered there to help kick-off the celebrations for the upcoming gala Stars Among Us to benefit the Alliance For Multicultural Community Service to be held on May 15, 2015 at the Westin Galleria, Houston, Texas. This year’s gala will be chaired by Saki Indakwa.
The mission of the organization is to provide comprehensive services to refugees, immigrants and low-income residents of Harris County in order to enhance the process of their cultural adjustment and economic self-sufficiency. These services are delivered in a manner that is linguistically and culturally appropriate and are designed to empower individuals, families and communities to succeed. Over the past 29 years, AMCS’s programs have included Refugee Employment, Refugee Resettlement, Refugee Case Management, Community Employment and Training, Youth Empowerment Programs, IDA, Micro-enterprise programs Refugee Transportation Program, Immigration Counseling, Interpretation, and Health Education and Advocacy Services to over 100,000 refugees, immigrants and low-income citizens.
Alliance for Multicultural Community Services was founded in July of 1985 through the integration of Cambodian, Ethiopian, Laotian and Vietnamese refugee organizations into a Mutual Assistance Association. Since then, the Alliance has expanded to serve individuals of all ethnicities, providing services to approximately 6,500 clients annually.
At the kick-off party guests enjoyed meat balls, lamb creations and complimentary drinks. Supporting such a noble cause were: Patrick Leung President (AMCS), Yani Keo Executive Director and Co-Founder, Farida Abjani (media kick-off party host), Miya Shay, Tammy Tran Nguyen, Amanda Halter, Miriam Daria, Kerry Spare, Lily Zhang, Rosemin Premji, Nick Rivera, Monira Kundi, and others.
