Thank You for making our 45th Anniversary Gala a Huge Sucess!

Gala_pic_nl_rsASIAN, Inc. would like to thank all who supported and attended this year's historic 45th Anniversary Gala.  The event was a huge success with a full house that enjoyed a seated dinner with entrepreneral speeches from keynote speakers Lisa Q. Fetterman and Wai-Yan Sandy Chau.  They were moved by the inspirational stories from the AACA scholarship winners as well as laughed through the night at the comedy of Kabir "Kabeezy" Singh, but you don't have to just take our word for it click the video to see for yourself.

Housewarming for our clients who moved into 1400 Mission
On September 30, 2016, ASIAN, Inc. hosted 150 new homeowners and residents of 1400 Mission, one of San Francisco’s newest high-rise condominium communities, for a celebratory housewarming meal.  These families had successfully completed ASIAN, Inc.’s first-time homebuyer education workshop and one-on-one counseling.  Through San Francisco’s Below-Market-Rate Ownership Program, they were able to gain entry into the country’s most challenging housing market.  Representatives of Citibank and Umpqua Bank, who had helped finance many of these families’investment in the American Dream, were also there to celebrate.
