Home   What We Do   Leadership and Advocacy

At The Cambodian Family, we pride ourselves in providing the people we serve with the tools necessary to become productive adults in society. Through training and development, we help to build leaders who go on to make positive changes in their community. In order to do this, we collaborate with  community residents, non-profit organizations, public institutions and student organizations on a number of different levels. Learn more about our work below.

Civic Engagement

Over the past 30 years, we have helped hundreds of refugees and immigrants pass their naturalization test. Recently, with funding made possible by The California Endowment, APALC, and Public Law Center, The Cambodian Family has been holding FREE Naturalization Workshops
