In 1934, the Ming Quong Home in Los Gatos, Calif. was established as a safe haven for Chinese, Chinese-American and Chinese bi-racial girls who, for a variety of reasons, needed a safe place apart from their families. Fast forward to 1987, Ming Quong Home in Los Gatos merged with the Eastfield Children’s Home and became Eastfield Ming Quong (EMQ) Children and Family Services – then EMQ FamiliesFirst, Uplift Family Services and now, Pacific Clinics.
