Welcome to Asian Services In Action, Inc.

Asian Services In Action (ASIA) was founded by four women in 1995, who sought to develop the untapped potential existing in the emerging Asian population and other communities in Northeast Ohio. In just 20 years, ASIA has grown exponentially with the addition of over two dozen new programs and services and the opening of a two new federally-qualified health centers, ICHC, in Akron and Cleveland. Focusing on our mission and vision of ASIA, we remain committed to the community as well as the growth of our organization.



ASIA’s International Community Health Center (ASIA-ICHC) offers excellent quality healthcare to those in the Cleveland and Akron areas. ASIA-ICHC delivers comprehensive, culturally and linguistically appropriate healthcare on a sliding scale to all community members, especially those who face economic or language barriers to care.
