Asians and Pacific Islanders with Disabilities of California
$5,400 - Peer Mentoring and Support
This grant will help to convene Asian and Pacific Islanders with disabilities and their families to form a network and support group. Often left out of mainstream disabilities communities and the Asian and Pacific Islanders community, Asian and Pacific Islanders with disabilities and their families long for a space of their own to gather, help and support one another. The project will create three “families:” San Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley, and Los Angeles. Grant funds will support programmatic expenses. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000838-01).
