Nationalities Service Center in Philadelphia

Nationalities Service Center (NSC) is a leading provider of comprehensive services for immigrants and refugees in the Greater Philadelphia Area. Its mission is to empower immigrants to thrive in our communities and pursue a just future. It offers a wide range of integrated services, including free and low-cost legal services, food access, health access, mental health treatment, job placement, readiness training, and ESL.

By offering a truly comprehensive support system, NSC helps immigrants and refugees to create safe, healthy, and self-sufficient lives for themselves and their families. Founded in 1921 under the auspices of the YWCA, NSC annually serves more than 5,000 individuals from 120 countries around the world—including victims of trafficking, torture, persecution, crime, and domestic violence.

Following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, NSC committed to resettling 500 Afghan evacuees, one-third of the total for Pennsylvania. NSC’s “Transforming Welcome” fund ensures that Afghan evacuees, and all people fleeing their homes under untenable circumstances, have a warm welcome, a comfortable home, and a good start at a new life.
