2011 Year end message from the Executive Director

Dear Friend:

On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff, and the community we serve at Asian Community Mental Health Services (ACMHS), we want to thank you for your support and investment in ACMHS. Every gift allows us to expand our critical work to serve immigrant children, youth, adults, families, and seniors who struggle to gain access to culturally competent care. Thank you for the important role you play in supporting the Asian and Pacific Islander (API) community!

One of ACMHS’ largest dreams became a reality recently when we established a new unit of integrated and comprehensive, early intervention and treatment, services for children and youth. The Children and Youth Integrated Program will impact more than 700 clients and their families each year, both insured and uninsured, and will create a no-wrong door safety-net, a one-stop shop consisting of a wide range of wellness interventions promoting resiliency for API children and youth, from birth to 21 years of age.

Because of your generous financial support, we will be able to develop more language capabilities to better serve the API community, create innovative and holistic interventions such as peer-to-peer mentoring, support groups, bullying prevention, and positive enrichment activities.

Again, thank you for collaborating with us by making a year-end gift. This will help us transform the lives of underserved API children, youth, parents, and families.

Sincerely,

Lily Lue Stearns, Ph.D.
Executive Director & CEO
