HOW WE SERVE NEW YORK CITY
ADDRESSING THE NEED.
COVID-19 has had a drastic effect on all our lives, but it has impacted the poor the most. Since the announcement of the lockdown, Breadline Africa has been supporting emergency feeding programmes in poor communities to alleviate hunger.
OUR IMPACT BY THE NUMBERS
TCAH has served over 2 million individuals, established 250 new community partnerships, two temporary community food distribution centers of approximately 30,000 SF in Brooklyn and Far Rockaway, and continues to grow and cultivate 20,000 pounds of nutrient-rich foods on its urban farms.
TCAH’s annual impact has grown exponentially. TCAH has expanded its reach in the community and reconfigured its programming to accommodate our new normal while continuing to reach neighbors battling other socio-economic challenges.

A Safe Haven for families in need
TCAH’s wraparound care services to support immigrant asylum seekers in New York City is a comprehensive initiative designed to provide essential assistance and resources to individuals seeking refuge and protection in our community. The program recognizes the unique challenges faced by asylum seekers and aims to address their immediate needs while facilitating their integration into the local community.
The program offers a range of services, including legal aid, case management, counseling, and access to healthcare. Skilled immigration attorneys work closely with asylum seekers to guide them through the complex legal processes, helping them prepare their asylum applications and representing them in immigration court proceedings. This support is crucial in ensuring that asylum seekers have a fair chance to present their cases and seek protection.
The program prioritizes mental health and psychosocial support, recognizing the emotional toll and trauma experienced by asylum seekers. Qualified counselors and therapists offer culturally sensitive services, creating a safe space for individuals to address their emotional well-being and cope with the challenges they have faced in their home countries.
Collaboration with community organizations, volunteers, and local stakeholders is a fundamental aspect of the program. These partnerships help expand the reach of services and provide additional support networks for asylum seekers. Public awareness campaigns and advocacy efforts are also carried out to foster understanding, promote empathy, and advocate for policies that protect the rights and dignity of asylum seekers.
TCAH’s care services also include advocacy and a commitment to upholding human rights and providing a welcoming environment for those seeking safety and refuge. Through a holistic approach that combines legal assistance, case management, mental health support, and community collaboration, the program strives to empower asylum seekers and facilitate their successful integration into society.
