A BIT ABOUT US

Working Towards a Better Tomorrow

Here at Sub-Saharan African Youth and Family Services in Minnesota, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2002, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon support, empowerment, and progress. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.

WE RESPECT THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS WHILE ACKNOWLEDGING THAT CULTURAL DIFFERENCES EXIST AND HAVE AN IMPACT ON SERVICE DELIVERY.
