Fil-Am Newport Profile

Established in the 1960's to assist transient Filipino-American sailors assigned to the Navy bases in the Newport, Rhode Island area, Fil-Am Newport emerged to become the center of most Filipino-American cultural and social welfare activities in Newport county and surrounding cities and towns in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Fil-Am Newport was formally established on December 30, 1991 as a Rhode Island non-profit corporation with the purpose to: "establish volunteer programs to aid the sick, disabled, old and the needy; assist deserving children who seek post secondary education; increase understanding of and share the Philippine culture with the community; assist military, students and other visitors; conduct educational programs and charitable activities; and achieve the highest standard of moral and unity".

Today, Fil-Am Newport is renewing its focus on the purpose of the organization, empowering its members and the Filipino-American community, and serving as the voice of Americans of Filipino descent in the Newport County and surrounding communities.

The following members were elected on Nov. 9, 2013.
Their term of office started on Jan. 1, 2014.
