ACI has gained the respect of the community because we are genuinely committed to going above and beyond to serve our clients. ACI differentiates its organization not only by having our clients come to us, but by bringing our services to our clients to actually standing side by side with our clients to obtain services. We mentor and empower the youth to help make a difference by volunteering. We maintain extensive documentation and a database of clients which allows us to maintain record keeping and service delivery. We also engage in an ongoing process of strategic planning and self-assessment that allows us to provide better and enhance services. The community needs we address not only help them live their best life, but also strengthen the community to excel. Let us now reflect upon and summarize many of the human services, economic development, social services, community acts and education accomplishments we have achieved since 2011. We serve a diverse population, which include Asian, African American, Caucasian, Filipino, Hispanics, and Indians.

ACI pursed its mission by assisting clients to live their best life, while building a legacy of empowering communities through projects and programs designed to assist clients facing emergency situations, guide clients along the path that leads to self-empowering, self- sufficiency and an improve quality of life.
