The Asian American Association for Human Services (AAAHS) Inc. was found in May of 1993. Realizing there was no one Asian American Association representing Asian Americans in the state, AAAHS was launched to provide human services and to present a united front for the Asian Americans in the state.

The original founders of the association included four Asian Americans: Fred Andes, DSW, Josephine Rago-Adia MSW, Antony Stephen Ph.D. and Mary Ann Wong MSW. Mary Ann Wong was its first Executive Director followed by Dr. Fred Andes. Since 1998, Dr. Antony Stephen is its Executive Director.

AAAHS is a not for profit, 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt association. Any contribution to the association is tax deductible.
Now AAAHS is not only recognized and known in the state but also in the nation.

Pioneered in organizing the Four Annual statewide Health Forums in collaboration with more than 30 other New Jersey Agencies:
1. Health Status of Asian Americans (year 2000);
2. Substance Abuse among Asian Americans (year 2001);
3. Mental Health Issues Among the Asian American Elderly (year 2003)
4. End of Life Care and Asian American Elderly (year 2005).

In 2004 published the research study entitled: Alcohol Use Among Asian Americans in Jersey City” with the funding from the Office of Minority and Multicultural Health, NJ Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS).

Mental AAASH provides Health and Addiction counseling for a nominal or no fee
