AHSC offers a continuum of social and support services in a culturally sensitive setting by reaching out to Asian immigrants, reacquainting them with the arts and culture of their homeland, providing opportunities for socializing, and fostering a sense of community. Our culturally relevant and linguistically appropriate community outreach includes our popular Ethnic Outreach & Meal Service Program for seniors and our Information Assistance Program.

Helping You Helping Me

The Helping You, Helping Me program is a home care worker training and referral program for the Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese communities in the Metro Portland tri-county area. The overarching aim of the program is to improve the health and well-being of individuals in our communities by addressing both upstream social determinants of health and downstream prevention and care needs.
