The mission of Chaldean and Middle-Eastern Social Services (CMSS) is to help refugee communities maximize their potential toward a better way of life, as well as to facilitate their acculturation into American society. To this end, CMSS educates and empowers resettling Chaldean and Middle-Eastern refugees by providing them with the primary healthcare, education and social service tools and programs necessary for comprehensive well-being and success in their new homeland.

Our programs are funded through a diverse array of sources, including public funding (federal, state, county, and city), private corporations, foundations, coordinating agencies, associations, and individuals such as MHSA, Office of Refugee Resettlement, SDG&E, Union of Pan-Asian Communities (UPAC), CalFresh, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Headstart, Cuyamaca College, and private donors.
