Who We Are
The Arab Community Center for Integration Services (ACCIS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded in January 2020. We have been active in the community since 2014 providing transitional assistance to newly arriving immigrants and refugees to Sacramento through Referral Services, Women and Youth Empowerment Programs, and Cultural Integration Activities. ACCIS is committed to helping community members achieve their long-term goals and making a difference in the community.
Since 2014, over 6,000 Arab refugees (mostly from Iraq and Syria) have resettled in the greater Sacramento area. Most newly arriving refugees face a number of issues as they integrate into their new lives:
ACCIS focuses on minimizing the cultural shock, and empowering newcomers to become productive members of the community while preserving their identity. The women empowerment and children enrichment programs raise emotional intelligence and promote wellness in a welcoming atmosphere.
