PAVI was established in 2006 to provide job training for bilingual immigrants interested in the healthcare field. PAVI offers training for Certified Nurse Assistants, Home Health Aids and Vocational ESL for health care workers. Our graduates serve Asian American seniors at home and through local health institutions.
In 2013, PAVI trained 96 Home Health Aids and employed 608 full and part-time Home Health Aides, the majority of whom spoke one or more Asian languages.
PASSi received a 3-year grant, from 2010-2013, from the US Department of Health and Human Services to fund the vocational training program and provide tuition assistance for Asian students.
