Self-Help for the Elderly Main Office
Board of directors
Secretary Linda Wang "My favorite memory of Self-Help for the Elderly was when I referred a client to the Agency for services. Although the service needed was not something the agency usually provided, Self-Help staff was flexible and extended themselves in order to help the client. This attitude and approach left a very positive impression."
Treasurer Gerald Lee "My favorite memory was meeting and talking to the late Bo Gin, the 100 year old senior at Lady Shaw. To see how active and happy she was to be there, defined to me what Self-Help for the Elderly is all about."
Rosalyn Koo "My favorite memory occured 20 years ago (1990) on the day of our official dedication of Lady Shaw Senior Center when I looked down at the 9 lions dancing in front of the brand new building paying homage to Self-Help and her seniors. I knew then with absolute certainty that our agency would expand to serve many more seniors in the community beyond Chinatown."
Jerry Lee, Esq. "My favorite memory of the organization was during the early days when I served on many different subcommittees. Gordon J. Lau, Linda Wang and I would roll up our sleeves and work on any little niche or knock on any small door to raise money for seniors in the community."
Sebastian Wong "My favorite memory would be the first time I volunteered to deliver Thanksgiving meals. In the 1980s, I was invited to join the Asian police officers and firefighters to participate in delivering Thanksgiving meals, and it was very rewarding to see the elderly brighten up when we arrived. Self-Help does so much for the community with the dedication of their staff and volunteers."
