Chinese immigrant families
Boston's Chinatown is the most densely populated area in the city. Many are new immigrants, senior citizens, & families with small children who face:
lack of affordable housing
language barriers to access mainstream resources
They are often marginalized, their needs & stories ignored.
ACCESS seeks to empower, encourage, & motivate immigrants to build confidence, gain skills, and the ability to make positive changes within their own lives.
We want to see our Chinatown neighbors thriving and building bridges across languages, cultures, and generations in God's love.
Built on Relationships
Based on Love
ACCESS was founded by a group of Christians attending Boston Chinese Evangelical Church in 1991. Our founders were convicted that God loves all people & loves the whole individual person, as well as, their families. At ACCESS, we seek to emulate that love in every aspect of our programs and initiatives, connecting with compassion, serving the whole person and their families.
Along with our regular programs for kids and seniors, we host family holiday activities & dinners to continue building relationships.
We've also invited professionals to host classes on parenting & navigating the Boston Public School system.
We're always open to event & class ideas. Consider volunteering with us!
