Mission Statement

The Eau Claire Area Hmong Mutual Assistance Association, Inc. (ECAHMAA) strives to actively assist Southeast Asian families to become socially and economically self-sufficient by: accessing educational opportunities, teaching job skills, strengthening family relationships and promoting and preserving traditional customs.

Description

The Hmong-Americans began arriving in the United States after 1976. Although America offered safety from the threat of communist persecution, life in a new country was not without its challenges. The ECAHMAA was established to help Hmong families and individuals overcome cultural shock, language barriers, lack of education, and lack of job skills.

These issues are relevant for both recently arrived refugees and established residents. For the past two decades the ECAHMAA has been sensitive to the needs of both groups within the Hmong community. Since the ECAHMAA started, the Hmong population has grown to over 3,000 in Eau Claire and Chippewa Counties, making it the largest minority group in the area.
