November 2018 - 275 Hancock Street, North Quincy Site Opening

QARI opened a new location at 275 Hancock Street in North Quincy, made possible by South Shore Bank. QARI will be providing outreach services, youth programs, adult education, and workshops.

This expansion increases accessibility and services to the population QARI serves. North Quincy is an area with a high Asian population. The new location is directly across the street from North Quincy High School where 57% of its student population is Asian.


September 2018 - Expanding Higher Education Pathways

Building upon our partnership with the MBTA/MassDOT, QARI's Workforce Enterprise continues to partner with organizations and companies that want to expand their impact and services in the growing Asian community. These strategic partnerships, where we provide workforce and service solutions in higher education, healthcare, municipality, and service sectors, also create meaningful career opportunities to the Asian and immigrant community.

QARI is excited to welcome Eastern Nazarene College (ENC) as one of our Workforce Enterprise partners. Our education team will help ENC and our higher education partners expand their presence and outreach to the ever growing Asian and international student population in Quincy and the greater South Shore areas.

March 2018 - Workforce Enterprise

Dear QARI Supporters,

We want to express our sympathies to people in Quincy and other towns that were affected by the storm.  QARI and our volunteers are committed to providing support during this recovery period.  Please do not hesitate to contact QARI for assistance.  

Today is a milestone for QARI as we announce the launch of Workforce Enterprise.  We are incredibly grateful to our community leaders, board members, and CEOs from various sectors for supporting us in this journey.  I am excited and humbled to partner with many visionary innovators in the Workforce Enterprise to create more socially responsible and sustainable avenues to support our community services and programs.  This initiative aligns with QARI's mission and culture in innovation, consistency, and growth. 

You can learn more about the Workforce Enterprise and how we partnered with the MBTA/MassDOT during the Wollaston T Station closing. 

Thank you all for your support of QARI.

Philip Chong
Chief Executive Officer
