Based in Willmar, the Coalition of African Community Services of Kandiyohi County helps African immigrants become well adjusted to life in the United States while focusing on bridging African and American cultures so that all Willmar citizens understand and appreciate one another. Prior to the coalition’s formation in 2002, the African immigrant community in Willmar was fairly isolated. Since then, the coalition has successfully and comfortably integrated many of these Africans within the greater community.
The coalition is supported by three staff members and provides services and assistance with housing processes and community formation to Africans in the Willmar area. These services can be provided in both English and Somali.
To reach the Coalition of African Community Services contact the Executive Director, Abdi Duh, at 320-223-3510.
