Tzu Chi USA
The Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation is a global non-profit humanitarian organization founded in 1966 by a Buddhist nun named Dharma Master Cheng Yen in Taiwan. Its missions of medicine, charity, education, and humanistic culture have brought relief to 128 countries and counting. In 1989, Tzu Chi USA was established and now has 63 offices across the US. The heart of Tzu Chi is embedded in its name: in Chinese, “tzu” means compassion, and “chi,” relief.
Herald Christian Health Center (HCHC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to serving the community through no/low-cost medical, dental, behavioral health, optometry, acupuncture, spiritual support, enrollment, and social services. The mission of HCHC is to “provide high quality and affordable holistic health care to the low-income and underserved”. In 2007, HCHC was founded with a vision to establish a community clinic for new Asian immigrants with limited English proficiency and offer them a resource that they might not have been able to access, due to linguistic, cultural, or financial barriers. After more than 16 years of providing affordable and culturally competent healthcare services to underserved communities, HCHC now operates six clinic sites in City of Industry, El Monte, Garvey School-Based, Rosemead, San Diego, and San Gabriel.
