Short description:
National Asian Pacific American Families Against Substance Abuse (NAPAFASA) is a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) membership organization dedicated to addressing the alcohol, tobacco, and other drug issues of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) populations on the continental U.S., Hawaii, the six Pacific Island jurisdictions and elsewhere. Founded in 1988, NAPAFASA involves service providers, families, and youth in efforts to reach API communities to promote health, social justice and reduce substance abuse and related problems.


NAPAFASA is governed by a volunteer 33-member board of directors and has a national office in the Los Angeles. Its nationwide network consists of about 200 AAPI and human service organizations.
