Serving Immigrants and Refugees since 1921
Nationalities Service Center (NSC) is a non-profit organization that provides social, educational and legal services to immigrants and refugees in the Greater Philadelphia area. Our strength lies in the diversity of our clients and services. Since NSC’s founding in 1921, our mission has been to help immigrants and refugees participate fully in American society.
Each week, hundreds of refugees and immigrants come through the doors of NSC - and every one of them has a story to share. These are stories of loss and often tragedy - but, these are also stories of hope, kindness, and determination. NSC has teamed up with a group of young journalists from Temple University who will bring you these stories.
“Philadelphia has been trying to revitalize its neighborhoods through various different ways, and establishing community gardens has become one of the popular and effective solutions that community leaders and city officials are relying on. These gardens can also offer newcomers a way to grow roots in a new city, to create a small oasis that reminds them of home, and to grow food. For Bhutanese and Burmese refugees resettled by Nationalities Service Center (NSC) in South Philadelphia, the garden also serves as a cherished hub of connection.” … Read the full story here
