Asian Americans for Community Involvement (AACI) will be hosting its annual fundraiser Better Together 2018 on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM at the Computer History Museum. The event is expected to bring together more than 300 participants with the goal of raising over $300,000 to support AACI programs, which serve primarily low income, underserved, and immigrant individuals and families.
“As we look forward to new beginnings, the festive evening of networking, food, live auctions and entertainment is an opportunity to thank the generous donors and sponsors who have walked with AACI in the commitment to provide behavioral health, wellness and healthcare services for all regardless of race, faith, sexual orientation or immigration status,” said Sarita Kohli, AACI President & CEO. “We are so grateful for our community of supporters and honored to work alongside them towards a bright future for our clients and communities.”
AACI provides accessible, culturally competent services for all and relies on generous community support to provide health, mental health and wellness services to every individual and family who needs it, regardless of their ability to pay. Donations collected at Better Together ensure access to the best possible integrated care for anyone who walks through AACI’s doors.
This year, the event celebrates the new beginnings many of our clients embark on after facing tremendous hardships. “Here at AACI, we’ve designed an integrated, culturally competent model of care that allows us to provide critical health and wellness services for the most underserved,” said Sallie Rupe, Behavioral Health counselor.
“My focus is on the mental health of my client, but I am also able to work closely with our Health Center and Case Workers to ensure that we are addressing their whole health. Our clients often have complex health needs, and our multi-disciplinary team works together to open a door to healing and provide a path towards a healthier, safer life.”
