Although SAAC currently supports community members mostly by going out to meet with them at the various county contracted mental health and alcohol and drug services agencies, SAAC had traditionally supported community members by having them come to our office. Currently, once a month, SAAC hosts a free legal clinic in collaboration with Asian Law Caucus. Also, on a drop in basis, SAAC continues to support community members who may require assistance with understanding certain letters from social services, social security, etc.
As an effort to expand our services, beginning August 10, 2017, we will start holding Hmong Support Groups from 9 AM – 11 AM at our office to be staffed by volunteers. At these support groups, various topics relating to general health, mental health, naturalization, citizenship and other topics would be covered. Community members can also bring paperworks that they need help understanding or completing. Our volunteers will help free of charge. Below is a public announcement in the Hmong language on these upcoming Hmong Support Groups.
