Founded in 1965, the Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC) provides a variety of services to more than 6,000 people daily and an estimated 25,000 individuals each year. While most clients are from the city's Chinese-American communities, CPC programs are available to all New Yorkers.
Designed to improve the quality of life of both new immigrants and established New Yorkers, CPC has something for everyone. Twelve pre-school and after-school centers deliver educational and recreational services for children and support services for parents. The senior citizens' programs serve 500 hot lunches daily and include home attendants, senior housing and health care services. Drug prevention and education, summer youth employment and employment training are available for young people. Adults can benefit from a full range of entitlement assistance, employment services, immigrant information and a myriad of adult education opportunities.
