Cross-Cultural Counseling

Vulnerable Asians face various difficulties with language and cultural barriers. The counseling helps alleviate these barriers and empowers Asians as they discover the ability to build their new homeland in the U.S.A.


Marriage and Family Counseling

This counseling assist families and couples who are having difficulty adjusting to the American life-style emotionally, physically and spiritually. Counseling supports families coping with the pressures of adapting to their new culture. The program helps to rebuild and stabilize the relationships that preserve and strengthen family unity.


Medical Assistance

One of the basic needs of human life is good health. Health care is one of the most important issues that Asians face. Many Asians work hard, receive low pay and are not covered by medical insurance. Besides the language barriers, it is easy for Asians to neglect their health care. There are all sorts of reasons: fear of communication, fear of inability to pay, and lack of knowledge of where to go for treatment. AHS connects Asians to particular support for the prevention of serious illness (etc. breast cancer and uterine cancer for women, prostate check up for men and children's immunization services).


Employment Services

AHS assists Asian people in finding secure employment, including information regarding the existence of and location of jobs. AHS also aid the applicant with the procedures relating to getting a job.


Interpretation / Translation
