The AACC is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services that meet the community’s economic, social, and cultural needs. We strive to empower Arab Americans so they become healthier, stronger, engaged, and integrated citizens.

AACC Vision

Since its establishment in 1990 the Arab American Community Center (AACC) has been a source of community empowerment in Central Florida. In the last several years the AACC has experienced tremendous growth and has become recognized as a leader in the local community and in the state at large.

Our ultimate goal is to become a fully staffed, professional organization dedicated to the growth of our community throughout the state. Our vision for the future is to establish offices throughout the state and to build community centers that would further empower our community. Moreover, we are looking to create a board from the entire state that would oversee the work of all the Florida offices with the ultimate goal of empowering and uniting the community.
