American Chinese Christian Educational and Social Services

Organization Description: 

We are an organization that is established to enhance family life, increase Chinese immigrants' understanding of American culture, encourage communication between cultures, and communicate the Gospel through active caring and integration of Christian values into the curriculum. We are located in Chinatown, open five days a week. Programs include an afternoon school program (conducted in English) for children kindergarten through 5th grade, a mothers' group, adult English classes, income fax filing service, information/referral/translation, and family life workshops. Most of the adults we serve are Chinese speaking (Cantonese or Putonhgua or Fukienese). Most of the children were born in the U.S. Most families are of low income. Our board of directors is racially and linguistically diverse, as is our pool of volunteers and staff.
