Chinese Christian Herald Crusades (CCHC) offers education, mentoring, and recreation programs for Chinese-American youth.

Mission: To reach out to the Chinese immigrant community to share God’s love in practical ways through community service, literature, caring ministries, and evangelistic meetings, to reach as many as possible for Christ.

Our volunteers mentor and provide English tutoring for immigrant youth, coach volleyball and basketball at seasonal clubs, and provide childcare for autism support group.
Our funding helps to cover costs for mentoring and tutoring programs, activities with individuals with autism, as well as seasonal sports and recreational activities.
We love CCHC because they serve Chinese immigrant youth to boost their confidence and help them navigate New York City.
