CONNECT WITH US

SACSS was created in 2000 with a mission to empower  and integrate underserved South Asians and other immigrants into the economic and civic life of New York. We assist individuals and families in the areas of healthcare access, senior services, other benefits and civic engagement. We provide basic and advanced English and computer classes. SACSS runs the first South Asian food pantry in New York.  All of our programs are free and are provided by culturally competent staff members who speak Hindi, Bengali, Urdu, Punjabi, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam, Nepali, Tamil, Telugu, and Spanish.
