FREDERICK, Md. - The Asian American Center of Frederick will now be able to offer more services to immigrants throughout the community. Officials with the organization say they are already known to give a lot of helpful information to those who have recently moved to U.S.
Thanks to being included in the Frederick County Maryland’s Proposed Community Partnership Grant for the 2018 fiscal year, the Asian American Center of Frederick says they can help immigrants that are new to Frederick County get the resources they need. Officials say this particular grant will help a new program they have called “Community Health Workers."
"These workers are professionally trained, and they will be working with schools and helping families who may have a language and cultural barrier, not knowing how to navigate a school or having a concern about the kids, and not knowing how to communicate with the teachers,” said the Asian American Center of Frederick’s Executive Director, Elizabeth Chung.
Officials with the organization added that the Community Health Workers with the Asian American Center of Frederick will also help with health needs, and cultural adjustment. They say this is the first time they've gotten a grant to support these services for the community.
