CIANA Says Goodbye to Our Newtown Avenue Office

On March 5, Emira Habiby Browne, CIANA’s Founder and CEO took one final look at our now-empty Newtown Avenue office. After 15 years serving immigrants from our location just off the N/W 30th Avenue station, CIANA has moved to a new office in a different part of Astoria.

We will announce our new address when we are finished setting up and ready to welcome clients.

While the process of finding a new location and moving all our tools, supplies, and technology was physically and emotionally draining for all our staff, we are grateful to finally have a space to provide our much-needed immigrant services.

All our services will be offered virtually throughout the move: our adult English and Civics classes, afterschool programs for children, and legal and case management services will all continue as scheduled over the phone and by video.

CIANA’s contact information remains the same as before. We can still be reached by phone at (718) 545-4040, by email at, and on our website. There may be a delay in returning calls as all our staff members are engaged in the moving process. Nevertheless, we will work to ensure our clients continue to receive the attention their cases need and deserve.

While we are grateful to all those who helped us with the move, we are particularly thankful to Council Member Tiffany Cabán’s office for their guidance in the early stages of this process.

We are excited to finish setting up our office so we can share our new location with the community, and once again welcome new immigrant community members to our new home.

During this time of change and transition, we rely on support from our community. Please consider donating to CIANA to help make our new office a welcoming home and a safe space for new Americans.
