As the largest Asian American social services agency in the United States, the Chinese-American Planning Council, Inc. (CPC) provides culturally sensitive programs for all ages. CPC currently serves over 8,000 people daily through 50+ contracted programs in 30+ locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
In 1966, CPC launched its first school-age child care center (SACCC) in Manhattan, in close coordination with the Department of Education’s public school system, in order to best support immigrant families. CPC also provides day care through five Early Child Care centers throughout the city, a vital asset for working immigrant families. Soon after, CPC launched Project Reach which originally provided programs for at-risk gang youth in Chinatown. Today the program focuses on services for youth of all backgrounds especially LGBTQI teens. CPC over the years added Youth Employment and Internship Programs, a school-based Beacon community center, Project Gateway college options program, and other after-school and in-school programs for underserved youth and teens.
1972 - 1983
CPC currently has five program areas that serve three New York City boroughs (Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan): Child Care Services, Youth Services, Senior Services, Community Services and Workforce Development. CPC’s Home Attendant Program is an affiliate with its own tax identification number.
