About Us

Who We Are…

The Ethiopian American Community Association (EACA) is a non-profit, charitable organization committed to serving the cultural, psychological and socio-economic needs of refugees and immigrants in Massachusetts
It can be very difficult for people who have emigrated from their own country. Immigrants may often feel trapped between two cultures with different values and lifestyles. This program helps to build bonds of friendship among all people of Ethiopian descent. EACA welcomes other African, Asian, Middle Eastern, Latino and Eastern European immigrant populations who seek its services.
Established in 2007, EACA assists in the promotion of personal growth, financial stability, positive family and community relations and community empowerment.
 It is important for our children to develop an understanding of their place and identity in the world and we are working to build a strong, tight knit community in Massachusetts. We are all thousands of miles away from Africa and the U.S. is a very different place. We want to provide a place for people to come together as a Community and for children of Ethiopian/African descent to be able to share their feelings, to keep busy, to take part in enjoyable sports and activities and to stay out of trouble. We aim to provide a positive influence to help them develop a sense of pride in our community as citizens of the United States, and to carry on the legacy of Ethiopia. 
Volunteers are important to EACA. Ethiopian and American volunteers provide assistance and support in areas ranging from orienting newcomers to help them settle; from clerical duties to assisting students with homework and teaching Math, English, Science, Social Studies and Computer classes.
