Afghan Support Centers

Helping you get the support you need to make the U.S. your home

We are so thankful for all the providers in Pittsburgh who helped 469 Afghans get the support they needed during our Support Center Event on July 19-22, 2023. So many organizations came together to offer compassionate and caring solutions to these families. If you couldn't attend or have additional questions about services available to you, please review the provider list below and contact them. They are ready and eager to help you.

As DHS’s commitment to Operation Allies Welcome (OAW) parolees is enduring, USCIS hosts Afghan Support Centers to assist them in connecting to services integral to their long-term stability and integration in the United States. While USCIS provides the support center forum, USCIS does not endorse any service providers present and does not participate in, nor is responsible for, the services provided by any service providers.
