Arab American Chaldean Council

The Arab American Chaldean Council, or ACC, has their main offices at 26400 Lasher Rd, in Southfield  Michigan.  The phone number is 248-354-8460.

 

ACC is the premier, non-profit, human service organization providing services to the Middle Eastern and mainstream communities in Southeast Michigan.  As a bridge of understanding, ACC maximizes the skills, resources and expertise of the community to build cooperation and understanding, raise the level of individuals’ well-being, increase cross-cultural understanding through education, deliver human services, counseling and opportunities, gear community members towards achievement, and empower through employment training and placement.

 

Throughout the 20th Century and continuing today, the Detroit area has attracted a steady stream of immigrants from the Middle East, who today estimate near 500,000. In 1979, acutely aware of the fact that these newly arrived immigrants needed assistance in order to adapt to life in the United States, a group of visionary community members founded the Arab American and Chaldean Council, or ACC.

 

ACC opened its one person office, housed within the International Institute in Detroit, and served 421 clients during its first year of operation. Over 40 years later, ACC provides over 650,000 services annually to those in need through its 40 outreach offices.

 

The mission of ACC is to support the overall well being of the community. Programs deliver various, educational, employment and training, behavioral health, youth recreation and self-enrichment services, cultural activities, immigration and health services.

 

ACC is committed to “Making a Difference” in the lives of those it serves and is proud to serve the growing multi-ethnic community of Metropolitan Detroit.
