In-language video tutorials help immigrant families succeed


ASIAN, Inc. now provides video tutorials in-language, allowing greater outreach and aid to our non-English-speaking clients who aspire to realize the American Dream in the 21st century.


Most recently, we have launched a Chinese-language step-by-step tutorial video on how to join the Below-Market-Rate (BMR) Homeownership Program at 1400 Mission Street. The video features our trilingual housing counselor Crystal Huang.

With digital-age media, we hope to better connect with our both English- and non-English-speaking clients who are looking to achieve their asset development goals. As our client base grows, we seek to constantly improve and adapt our services in the most linguistically effective ways possible.

The step-by-step tutorial video for 1400 Mission Street is now available on our 1400 Mission Street webpage as well as on YouTube and Facebook.

   After a long 40-year wait, the Golden State Warriors have brought the NBA championship back to the Bay! The Warriors' storied championship run has meant a great deal to Oakland and the greater San Francisco Bay Area, especially to minority business enterprises that have supported the Warriors' home games. 
Our intern Anne Marie Chua trekked from Singapore to the streets of Oakland to live the chance experience of a sports championship parade in the Bay Area. Joining the euphoric party of a half a million #DubNation fans, she snapped these photos and videos.
Congratulations to our Warriors on bringing home the Championship!
