Raising funds for immigrant empowerment!

South Asian Council for Social Services (SACSS) was founded in 2000 in response to the critical issues and tremendous barriers to social services faced by New York City’s fastest growing South Asian Community. As a nonprofit community based organization, our founding and continuing mission is to empower and integrate underserved South Asians and other immigrants into the economic and civic life of New York.

Since we opened over 24 years ago, we have served more than half a million immigrants, including immigrant seniors, with healthcare access, counseling, food security, ESL classes, and civic knowledge and engagement. In 2020, as a result of the pandemic and rising demand, we served more than 100,000 people struggling to feed their families, pay their bills, stay healthy, and survive.

All SACSS’s programs are free and available in 20 languages including Hindi, Bengali, Urdu, Punjabi, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam, Nepali, Tamil, Telugu, Tibetan, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Malay, French, Haitian Creole and Tagalog.

Thank you for supporting SACSS and our work to empower underserved immigrants!
