The Lao Family Community of Minnesota is a support group for Chinese Americans to help them in transitioning from their Chinese descent to an American way of life. We help Chinese Americans reconcile these two cultures which will undoubtedly become a big part of their lives. We understand that settling down in a different country many miles away from your original home can be sad, confusing, and stressful. But it can also be fun, exciting, and can open up a whole new world of opportunities for you and your family as you open your garage doors in Wichita. Why are we saying this? Because we’ve been in the same situation and now it is time to give back to our fellow Chinese Americans who seem lost in this jungle. We understand the calling to pursue your American dream and at the same time having a battle inside your heart and mind if this is indeed worth pursuing. America, to the newcomer from the East, can be intimidating. There are lots of things to learn and do in order to acclimatize yourself to the Western way of living. You have to unlearn to learn. But it does not mean that you have to lose your identity in the process. That is why we are here to help you find yourself.
