What We Do
Whether you are a newcomer to New York, a long-term resident, or a short-term visitor, you may encounter unforeseen problems arising from cultural differences, the language barrier, or a lack of familiarity with procedures. JASSI’s bilingual staff members and cadre of volunteers stand ready to offer culturally sensitive assistance and support.
The mission of JASSI is to improve the quality of life for people living in the New York metropolitan area by providing quality social services at the local community level. JASSI provides services in both Japanese and English to people who face problems resulting from language barriers, cultural differences, and/or differences in service systems, and JASSI provides these services regardless of age, income, gender, race, ethnicity, or immigration status. All services are provided without any charge.
