Along with ABCD core programs, at the Asian American Civic Association (AACA) we offer specific programs to meet our neighborhood’s needs. For instance, If you’ve completed ESOL, consider Next Step, a program that provides basic job skills, job search, and job readiness, as well as  information about obtaining formal education.

Our Financial Counseling services feature financial management and budgeting, as well as counseling specifically for elderly populations receiving Social Security. This knowledge might come in handy if you’d like to explore our Homeowner Program: one-on-one counseling and case management for first time home buyers, home search assistance, home buying and mortgage applications, and assistance with other related home buying procedures.
