Welcome to the Chinese-American Association of Plainview (CAAP)!
Plainview is a 5.7 square mile Long Island hamlet, situated in Nassau County in the Town of Oyster Bay. According to the 2015 census, the population was approximately 28,390 with the two dominant racial demographics being 84.1% White and 14.1% Asian (of which 879 or 3.1% of the population are Chinese). In response to a growing Chinese-American population, CAAP was founded by enthusiastic Plainview Chinese-American residents.
CAAP is is a non-profit community organization founded on the principles of friendship and inclusion. Our mission is to provide support for our Chinese-American community as well as to empower new immigrants and residents by educating them of available resources. We aim to strengthen our community by providing information to civic and educational services including local schools, elections, and medical resources. We want our families to achieve independence and to be active and productive members of Plainview. CAAP also strives to educate the public about our wonderful Chinese heritage. We seek and welcome cultural exchange and engagement with our neighbors and community. CAAP’s ultimate goal is to create and drive a welcoming community of friendship of inclusion and solidarity for our Chinese-American residents and neighbors.
