Dear Friends,
COVID-19 has created many changes in our communities and at PACS. Since March 2020, with the Stay/Safe at Home order issued by the State, PACS temporarily closed its offices to the public.  However, our staff has provided mental health services via phone and telehealth to all of our clients.   We plan to continue while protecting the health and safety of our staff and clients.

In addition, the agency has assessed for food insecurity, assisted with rent and other costs such as utilities and provided needed safety supplies.  Our goals include helping  with social isolation and providing information in language.

We encourage you to take care of yourself and each other. Wear a mask, wash your hands and maintain physical distancing.  You will be saving lives.  Thank you for your support.

Creating Possibilities

Pacific Asian Counseling Services (PACS) is a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles dedicated to healing people with mental illness through counseling and caring. The agency serves people of all ethnicities but we are especially proud of our expertise with refugee and immigrant Asian Pacific Islander populations. The staff strives to be linguistically diverse and culturally sensitive. Our clients are MediCal eligible or low-income. PACS is here to help people overcome emotional challenges so they can lead productive and meaningful lives


Long Beach Gives is our city’s annual day of online giving. The 24-hour online fundraiser provides an easy and fun way for our entire city to give together. It also provides Long Beach nonprofits the opportunity to gain exposure and start relationships with new donors. Our goal is to inspire individuals and businesses in our community to come together to make a difference in the exemplary work of the 100+ local, participating nonprofits. Last year was the first of its kind in Long Beach! We surpassed our $350,000 fundraising goal and raised over $822,000 for the 93 participating organizations. Long Beach Gives is returning on Thursday, September 24, 2020 with a $1 million dollar goal and over 100 participants!
