Mission Statement

Asian Community Care Organization (ACCO) is a peer-driven, community-based nonprofit organization that improves the health and well-being of underserved Asian community members, especially seniors, through advocacy, services, and referrals.

Description

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, ACCO plays a crucial role in addressing the health-related social needs of the local Asian community. With our compassion, innovation, and commitment, we strive to help people live better lives and build a stronger community.

We offer a range of services and collaborate with over 60 partners to help our members assess their social needs and navigate available community resources, including food assistance and housing. Additionally, we work with local health home programs to provide remote and home-based care management services, improving the quality of life for those we serve.

We offer an innovative tool for seniors to easily monitor their physical and mental health parameters through our WeCare Communicator mobile app. We engage them in health seminars, promoting preventive care services, mental health, healthy diet, chronic disease management, etc. to reduce risks that contribute to unnecessary visits to the emergency room and/or hospitalization.

Join our senior social community to connect, learn, and exercise with others from the comfort of your home. Participate in our online program, community events, and group outings that bring people together in their own communities. If you or someone you know would like to meet new people, have fun and receive help managing your health, we welcome you to join us!
