APCC’s Business and Community Engagement Services (BCES) provides outreach and support services for families, businesses, and the greater community, focusing especially on the AANHPI community.



Asians, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders are a marginalized, often-overlooked, underserved community. The COVID-19 Pandemic has especially shown inequities for AANHPI peoples, as well as BIPOC communities. The BCES program helps to address this need for equitable and inclusive services and support.



We provide assistance with navigating COVID-19 pandemic relief and recovery assistance for small businesses and families. Because of commercialization towards vaccinations, we do our best to serve underinsured and uninsured folk to receive immunizations without having to pay for health access. We partner with the Tacoma-Pierce County Department of Health, local pharmacies and other healthcare agencies to provide free COVID-19 testing and vaccinations at our APCC building. We also work with local health professionals and doctors to conduct free Health Screening Fairs to provide health insight and education on conditions that affect our community. We provide free PPE, hand sanitizers, and other supplies for small businesses, families, and other organizations.


We work with other community-based organizations and agencies to spearhead navigation of small business resources and tools to help keep businesses stay afloat. Whether they are financial needs, rental needs, or start-up support, we create an opportunity to make sure that business owners are encouraged to be resilient and believe in the success of their business.


We provide free food distribution for families in need. APCC collaborates with local partners to receive food drops that may be accessed for those who are facing food disparities.


We facilitate and host community meetings with TPCHD, Sound Transit, and other agencies and organizations so that the Asia Pacific community has a voice in the decisions that are made that affect them.


We provide interpreters and translation for the outreach and communication work that we do, including:

1. Samoan

2. Chamorro

3. Marshallese

4. Tongan

5. Fijian

6. Tokelau

7. Korean
