Notes from the nonprofit

The Asian American Resource Foundation (DBA AARC) seeks to build self-sufficient models of success by increasing access to available resources in the community and meeting the high demand for human support services in the Asian American community. The late Reverend Henry Jee founded AARC in 1997 to serve the special needs of Asian Americans in metro Atlanta. He was inspired to help Asian American immigrants as the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 limited government support services and benefits to immigrants. AARC initially provided translation services for limited English proficient adults and operated a food pantry. AARC has served over 1,500 individuals every year through Adult English Literacy courses, a permanent housing program, support services including vocational education and mental health services, government benefits assistance, and health programs,and phone call assistance.
