The Chinese American Service League (CASL) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit community-based social service agency working with the Chinese community in the greater Chicago area.
CASL is the largest and most comprehensive social service agency in the Midwest dedicated to the needs of Chinese Americans. A significant portion of its clients are newly arrived immigrants. These individuals often do not have formal education, and possess few transferable job skills. Since 90% of them speak little to no English, they find themselves unable to easily partake of many social services. CASL is there to bridge that gap with over 280 multilingual, multicultural professional and support staff.
CASL goals :
Since its founding in 1978, CASL has successfully helped thousands of newly immigrated Chinese to become independent, productive members of society through its comprehensive programming. CASL's programs:
