CHAA specializes in serving Asian American and Pacific Islander populations that require services by a culturally similar provider. Our philosophy focuses on cultural competency, a multicultural and strength-based approach, and language fluency. However, we do not limit our services to a particular group and we welcome all referrals.
Health Equity Initiatives: CHAA also has a Prevention and Early Intervention mental health program (API Connections) working with unserved Asian and Pacific Islander communities living in Alameda County, a Berkeley-Albany-based MHSA-funded Innovations program working with Asian and Pacific Islander women (Sisterhood for Wellness), an HIV Testing and Prevention Program (Sisterhood for Wellness - HIV Testing and Prevention) working with underserved Asian, Pacific Islander and African immigrant and refugee women, and the Nail Salon Workers Greening Their Jobs and the Environment project, funded as part of The California Endowment's 10-year Building Healthy Communities Initiative in Oakland, CA. This project will help Oakland to change the nail salon industry by improving working conditions for nail salon workers and reducing the greenhouse gas and other toxic pollutants from nail salons.
