Great Hearts Initiatives | Pan African Association

Mission

Our mission is to serve, empower, and promote the integration of refugees, asylees, and immigrants from Africa and beyond.

American history is forged upon the mutual assistance of community members, who have helped one another in acclimating to new surroundings, building new beginnings, and living the American Dream. The Pan-African Association continues the historic tradition of mutual aid, empowering individuals to live better lives through the strength of community.

Our mission is a powerful one: to enable Chicago’s refugees and immigrants to come together as a cohesive, supportive group. In so doing, people work hand-in-hand to ensure self-reliance, and healthier, happier lives. We do so in a variety of ways: providing tools that enable self-sufficiency and improve family health; strengthening mental outlooks through mentorship, workshops, and support groups; building bridges between refugees of all nations and Chicagoans from all backgrounds; forming collaborations that build happier lives, and assisting Chicago’s refugee communities to maintain their rich cultural heritage of music, art, dance, culinary, and literary achievements.
