Mission

QARI's mission is to foster and improve the social, cultural, economic and civic lives of Asian Americans and their families to benefit Quincy and its neighboring communities. Through collaborations and partnerships, we provide culturally competent services including adult education programs, youth development, and cultural events as well as information and referrals to public and other community organizations.

 
 
 
 

History

Founded in 2001, QARI is the go-to center for Asian residents in Quincy, such that they refer to us simply by our street number. A friend says to a friend, “Oh, just go to fifteen-oh-nine, they can help with that.”

QARI Founding Board

In 1998, prompted by the United Way of Massachusetts Bay, and with the support of the city, a group of Quincy's Asian residents and non-profit service providers, led by MA State Representative Tackey Chan, formed the Quincy Asian Collaborative. In doing so, they were responding to an urgent need for culturally and linguistically relevant services: the Asian population was not being adequately served by mainstream non-profits at that time due to the complex issues facing it. Since then we have developed a broad array of services to serve this population: we provide multilingual information and referral, adult education, youth programs, and organize city-wide cultural events to the benefit of Quincy and its diverse newcomer population.
