In June 2014, Aid to Children Without Parents, Inc. (ACWP) celebrated its 20ths Anniversary and reached the milestone of helping 30,000 disadvantaged children.  ACWP members (volunteers & benefactors) have launched the Nguyễn Đình Hữu’s Scholarship Fund and built a primary school in bác Hữu childhood village in bác Hữu’s honor. 
The school and scholarship fund served not only in tribute of bác Hữu’s lifelong dedication to the service of children, they also presented to these children his aspirations and beliefs, that someday soon, they will grow up and continue his mission – in service of future generations to come, one child at a time..



BLOOM stands for:

Dear ACWP Family,
It is with great sadness that ACWP mourns the loss of bác Nguyễn Đình Hữu, Founder of the Aid to Children Without Parents, who passed away on May 5th, 2022.  Even though his passing took him from our ACWP Family, his caring heart left a beacon of light to many of us, volunteers, he has mentored, and many many more children whom he has cherished and cared for.

Bác Hữu was the Founder, Executive Director, and Chairperson who tirelessly lead his ACWP family to fight on behalf of those without a voice - unaccompanied children at refugee camps in the late 80s and early 90s.  His heart led us to follow the children back to Vietnam where we found many many more children without parents and disadvantaged children, and from then on it has been a lifelong journey for bác and all in our ACWP Family.

ACWP took a huge leap in 2017-2018 to expand our mission and vision.  We are  starting a non-profit post-secondary vocational school called Knowledge  Innovations   Academy! .

The school will offer basic level courses in Accounting, Computer Applications, Culinary, Electronics Engineering Technician, and English. We believe that education has always been the root of change. Helping students develop marketable skills in addition to personnel development so students are able to contribute to society is our number one priority. We aim to provide career and education opportunities to children and disadvantaged people at the local and international level.

If you are interested in helping us fulfill ACWP’s next chapter, please feel free to contact us at Your continued support and encouragement help us help one child at a time.

We sincerely thank you for all of your kind donations and in-kind resources to make the benefit dinner successful.   

Imagine your 5 yr old daughter, son, nephew/niece, or even just a child next door being sold as slaves for sex with grown men!
We’re talking about the horrific crimes that go on behind closed doors in third world countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. Unfortunately, such crime does exist and these children are victims of a fast growing industry of “child sex trafficking”. What can we do to stop this? How can we help?

To respond to the deepening crisis in Ukraine, Aid to Children Without Parents (ACWP), a US-based nonprofit organization in the Bay Area, organized a benefit dinner to fundraise for Ukraine in partnership with many local organizations including CJ Stauffer Foundation, San Jose Vietnamese Running Club (SJVRC), Vietnamese American Nongovernmental Organization (VANGO) Network, Asian American Center of Santa Clara County (AASC), and World System Builder (WSB).
With the pay-forward sentiments, we raised a total of $70,000 exceeding the original goal of $60,000.  ACWP will distribute all $70,000 to the World Central Kitchen (WCK) given the long partnership between the two organizations responding to local crises and WCK is one of the leading organizations with boots on the ground in Ukraine and neighboring countries serving the refugees and displaced Ukrainians.

Dear supporters of ACWP,
Aid to Children Without Parents (ACWP) is about giving back to our most needed communities and currently, our country is in a state of emergency. 
At this time, ACWP and BLOOM Catering are working together to provide meals to essential workers who are on the front line to provide shelter and assistance to the homeless people, senior groups, and homeless people.

Since March 2020, With the donation from private and BLOOM‘s own pocket, Bloom has been delivered more than 50,000 meals helping many groups to deliver hot meals to homeless folks and continue to deliver healthy nutrition meals to any family who are COVID-19 positive or who have been exposed to COVID-19 need to be quarantined and there are many people who are still working to keep our community safe, which includes doctors, nurses, polices,  and various non-profits. They are currently the most at risk, and to keep them safe, we can donate and stay home.
Since May 2020, BLOOM & ACWP  partnered with WORK CENTRAL KITCHEN to deliver more than  100,000 meals thru the program called Great Plate Delivery which is designed to support adults 65 and older and adults 60-64 who are at high-risk from COVID-19, in staying home and staying healthy by delivering two nutritious meals a day during the COVID crisis.

We need your support!
