far below the poverty level with more mouths to feed than the average American
These needs in the Asian
community are rooted in cultural, educational and language barriers. To bridge these gaps between Asians and
American society, AACS offers a myriad of programs and services through its
following four departments: Community Education, Youth & Family, Health
Care & Prevention, and Interpreting & Translation.
Asian American Community Services seeks to educate the community and create a better quality of life for all
Asians in Central Ohio, regardless of
citizenship status, cultural ethnicity, and socioeconomic level.
