Mission:

The Philippine-American Association of Connecticut takes joy in its involvement in the greater Filipino communities and the community at large. The PAAC contributes to disaster relief efforts here (e.g. Katrina) and at home. It co-sponsors the annual Simbang Gabi sa Konsulado, and joins in the yearly Philippine Independence Day Parade in New York City with members performing a street dancing routine. Its charitable arm extends to those in need in the motherland through its Educational Scholarship Program, a co-sponsored Tulong sa Kapwa 2008 Medical Mission, and Ballroom Lessons for Charity, which benefited the wards of the Sisters of Charity in Tacloban City, Leyte.

Description:

The humble beginning of Connecticut’s oldest Filipino cultural community dates to 43 years ago, when a group of young Yale Filipino students and health care professionals came together in search for a “home away from home”. Finding comfort in each other’s company, they in turn attracted and welcomed other Filipino immigrants in Connecticut. Thereafter, they created a refuge for homesick Filipinos, sharing familiar traditions and customs of the Philippines. Today, membership of the PAAC includes experts and skilled individuals of the various trades, industries and fields from all over the state.
