About

AACHI exists to partner with the local Asian community in Austin to enhance public health and well-being. We fulfill our mission through language-specific education, advocacy, and healthcare navigation services. Our programs provide services for clients guided by the 5 social determinants of health, 1) Healthcare access & quality, 2) Education access & quality, 3) Social and community context, 4) Economic stability, 5) Neighborhood and built environment.


AACHI Supports the Community via:

Community Health Navigation Program: AACHI’s Community Health Navigation Program (CHN) employs bilingual Community Health Workers (CHW) to facilitate access to and improve the quality of medical and social services for marginalized Asian and Asian-American communities.

Annual Community Health Fair: Event primarily for limited English proficiency (LEP) refugee communities.


Last year AACHI:

  • Served 416 Asian immigrants and their families
  • 94% of our clients have received or maintained health coverage through AACHI’s assistance
  • Translated and distributed COVID-19 virus and vaccine information in 8 languages to thousands of individuals every month
  • Directly assisted over 350 clients to schedule vaccine appointments, along with providing transportation and interpretation for 1st and 2nd doses.
  • Successfully assisted roughly 50 immigrant families with rent, utility, and winter storm financial assistance totaling over $100k
