Bilingual International Assistant Services is a not-for-profit 501 (C) 3 organization established in May, 2002. Bilingual International was founded as a response to the unmet needs of the many seniors who had limited ability in the English language, were unable to navigate the intricate system of care, and often voiced fear over their future and livelihood.
