About Asian Human Services:

Hello!

I am interning at Asian Human Services this quarter and would like to tell you about the services offered by this non-profit organization in Chicago, and of some needs they currently need help with.

When immigrants and refugees arrive to live in Chicago, they often have nowhere to turn. AHS provides a familial safety net that helps the city's neediest individuals and families become thriving members of our community by offering comprehensive and integrated services in the following healthcare, education, and employment

At the AHS Family Health Center, clients have access to preventative care as well as affordable care for basic health issues. In AHS' Family Literacy Program, adults gain the English-speaking skills needed to land jobs, while at Passages Charter School, elementary grade students acquire the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in high school and beyond. Community Health programs reach out to thousands of clients providing vital health and wellness education and linking them to needed primary healthcare and support services.

Instead of falling through the cracks, Chicago's most vulnerable families are given the tools to succeed and a safe space to practice what they've learned.

The Need:

Asian Human Services offers many different resources for immigrants and those in poverty, and one "cause" I want to focus on is the need that their charter school, Passages Charter School, is currently facing.

AHS Passages Charter School has a financial need for funding to purchase uniforms for children. Many parents of the children who attend our school do not have the financial means to purchase uniforms, or sometimes do not own washing and drying machines to clean their children's clothes. All funds received will be used to purchase school uniforms for the children that attend our elementary school. The money raised will be immediately put into action.

Every 20$ donated will purchase a uniform for one of our children.
