About Us

About UISAC:

UISAC is a nonprofit organization that values diversity, holistic health, peaceful living, equal opportunity, civic and community engagement, especially for under­served populations including Refugees, Immigrants, and Minorities (RIM). We developed around 2006 out of the growing needs within the Charlotte­ metro area to support a rapidly diversifying population. We understand that a vibrant diverse population adds to the overall strength and well being of the whole community.
