Founded in 1978, the Chinese American Service League (CASL) is the largest and most comprehensive social service agency in the Midwest dedicated to serving the needs of Chinese Americans. Housed in the Kam L. Liu Building, with over 300 multilingual and multicultural professional and support staff, CASL's $11.38 million budget supports programming that mainly serves newly-arrived immigrants who often do not have formal education, possess few transferable job skills, and know little of the world around them. Since many of these individuals do not speak English and sometimes have no family or friends in the area, CASL becomes their instant family, friend, and teacher.

Each year the agency's programs -- in child education and development, employment services, counseling and social service, health, elderly services, and more -- reach more than 17,000 clients annually who live primarily in the Chinatown, Armour Square, and Bridgeport areas of Chicago. Additional clients from across Chicago, neighboring suburban communities, and adjacent Midwestern states also use CASL's services. CASL is a United Way partner agency and welcomes clients of all ages and backgrounds. CASL continues to work hard to ensure all members of Chicago's diverse population can become independent, productive members of society.
