Council for Cross Cultural Affairs
is a non-profit 501(c)3 agency committed to creating a healthy, safe, and functional community through education, cultural integration, and civic engagement of multicultural residents.

What we do

Council for Cross Cultural Affairs helps members of multicultural communities integrate into the fabrics of American society by connecting them with available resources. Our goal is to promote education, workforce development, sustainability, financial literacy, safety, conservation, literacy, civic engagement, and cultural awareness among low-income, refugee and immigrant communities.

We believe in empowering individuals of immigrant descent with a goal of helping them become proactive, self-sufficient, and active members of the mainstream community.



Thank you for inviting us to a great event! My staff enjoyed meeting and networking with the other agencies and community members. We would definitely love to participate again next year.

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to share Showcase and the Lincoln Chamber at your MultiCultural Business Expo. It was a room filled with excellent businesses and people. The exposure for both the Chamber and Showcase was helpful, and we received many good leads for new Chamber members and possible vendors for Showcase.
Paul and I so appreciate the support you have shown us. Your Slavic community is warm, welcoming, and delightful and we look forward to building and growing these connections in the future.
Thank you for including us in your event and in your network.
