Social Services Programs for the Well-Being of the Southeast Asian Community

There are few programs available in the U.S and in Rhode Island for people of the Southeast Asian community. However, CSEA specializes in programs and services that help the Southeast Asian community with things such as everyday needs and basic living assistance.
A few of the programs and services CSEA can help with include:

CSEA also assists with programs such as transitional housing management and other social services, which may or may not include case management/drop-in follow-ups and checks.

Other CSEA Social Services Programs

There are many ways CSEA works to help the Southeast Asian community to continue being a respected part of the Rhode Island landscape. By empowering, supporting, and providing those in the Southeast Asian community with a hand up (and not a hand out), we all benefit and everyone wins.
From the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program to help with finding the right employment opportunities after getting settled, CSEA is here to help. If you live in or around Providence or the surrounding communities and would like to learn more, we invite you to visit the CSEA and discover what our Social Services division has to offer.

The International Language Bank (ILB)

The International Language Bank (ILB) is a fee-for-service program that provides in-person interpretation, document translations, over-the-phone interpreting, and 24-hour emergency services by qualified experts. These services are offered to all members in our community who need assistance bridging the language barriers between providers/clients. We are currently offering over 20 different languages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All proceeds from the ILB go to support CSEA’s other community-based programs.
