Review for Asian Americans For Community Involvement Of Santa Clara County, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI) helps so many families in Silicon Valley. Over 30% of the population in Santa Clara County is Asian Pacific American, and AACI is the largest community-based organization focused on serving that population. They have programs that help at-risk youth, victims of domestic violence abuse, survivors of torture, low-income seniors, and families who need mental health counseling. AACI's shelter for victims of domestic violence serves a huge need in our community. Many of their clients do not speak English, which makes leaving abusive relationships even harder. The majority of these women are extremely low-income, surviving on less than $9,000 a year. Luckily, AACI has a comprehensive program to serve these women and their children. Their staff speaks 14 languages and include people who serve as family advocates and legal advocates. Given the wide range of languages and cultural backgrounds of AACI's staff, they are able to help women and children receive food, clothing, a safe place to stay, and a host of free and confidential services. Our community is a better place because of the dedication of AACI's staff.
