Services at the AACC

 

By Scott Novak 

Current Services:

The Arab American Community Center (AACC) offers a variety of important services to help strengthen our community here in Central Florida. Many of our staff and volunteers are fluent in Arabic, and Doris Allen, our health insurance marketplace navigator, is fluent in Spanish. We also have information pamphlets available in both Arabic and English. However, although we have materials that cater towards the Arab community specifically, our services are open to people of all backgrounds. You can access the following programs by visiting the AACC’s Orlando office at 4300 LB McLeod Suite B or by calling (407)-985-4550 to schedule an appointment.

Employment

  • Free appointment with an employment specialist at the AACC.
  • Referrals to Goodwill and CareerSource for employment help.
