About Kenya Welfare Association
Kenya Welfare Association Kenya Welfare Association About Us: With America?s population now drawn from virtually every corner of the world, the United States must grapple with both the promise and risk of being a global society. Kenyan immigrants and non-immigrants to the United States are no exception. Arriving in large numbers in the early 1990?s, Kenyans needed a network capable of serving their needs. By 1995, the semblence of a unity organization had been formed, (initially the Kenya Cultural Association and changing names several times). The organization would become a valuable resource to community policy makers, local communities, governmental bodies, and human service agencies. Through membership, coordinated activities and out-sourcing to religious facilities, more than 5000 immigrants and non-immigrants alike are provided with essential adjustment services each year. Services vary from help with Kenya & US immigration technical assistance to resettlement advice, job placement, legal service referral, small business development & support to housing, health, youth & elderly support, and cultural activities. The community impact from these programs and their services had developed cohesivenss and camaraderie that ensures that most issues are well-handled. The KWA mode of operanda has been duplicated in most major regions giving rise to other similar organizations such as the Organization of Kenyans in Kansas City to United Kenyans in Chicago.
