Asian Family Empowerment Project

 

The Disparity

Recent data from the regional center shows that Asians make up 19% of its client population but are only utilizing 13% of its services. The disparity indicates a significant portion of Asian families do not understand their entitlement to access resources and services.

FCSN supports and empower Asians with disabilities to access regional center services.

1) Our Goals:

  1. Educate and inform Asian families about services available in the community.
  2. Improve Regional Center services more accessible for Asians.
  3. Increase referrals of potential Asian clients for Regional Center intake.
  4. Empower clients to fully utilize their approved services.

2) What We Do: Partner with the Department of Developmental Services:

  1. Host events and resource fairs to help families access and utilize services.
  2. Hire bilingual staff to increase service capacity for Asians.
  3. Build network with community organizations to support Asian families.

3) Join Us:

  1. One to One Mentorship: Staff and parent mentors will help individuals navigate regional center and community services.
  2. Coffee and Tea Gatherings: Every month, we host support groups for parents and guardians who seek advice and resources in raising their special needs loved one.
  3. Bilingual Family Seminar Series: Offer weekly seminars on topics related to resources, services, and support for special needs individuals and their. These gatherings are opportunities for families to network with each other. Sessions are conducted in Mandarin and Cantonese.
