The Angkor Resource Center, Inc, founded by Randy Muth, is a social services center/multi-cultural non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that serves low-income Asian-Americans and other ethnic groups in Clayton & Henry Counties.
The mission is to help Asian-Americans and others to adjust socially and economically by providing education, information, and developmental services to improve their overall health and well-being and ultimately help them become self-sufficient.
“Mr. Muth has firsthand experience as a refugee. He and his family were among the many thousands of Cambodian refugees who were resettled in the United States during the 1980s. Over the years, Randy has gained a wealth of experience working with national and grassroots Southeast Asian American and refugee serving organizations. Passionate about improving the lives of vulnerable refugees, the elderly, youth, women and children, Randy’s work is focused on issues related to health, human services, and education for the Asian community. He has conducted outreach activities and provided technical assistance on a variety of issues, to include anti-Asian violence and hate crime prevention, and immigration and advocacy. Additionally, Randy Muth has directed the English Language Leaning and Integration program which was designed to build legislative and public education strategies to encourage support of adult English language acquisition. He has coordinated early-childhood-education campaigns that served Cambodian immigrant families through community education channels, to include parenting workshops, counseling, and community forums.
Assuming his current role as Angkor CEO, in 2009, Randy supervises programs, coordinates visitors and facilitates communication between government agencies and other nonprofit organizations. His policy work centers around economic development and census related issues… Currently, Randy’s work is focused on strengthening organization structure of ARC so the organization can increase the capacity to better serve and represent Asian-American communities. Commencing his public service work in San Bernardino, CA. in 1997, Randy provided resettlement services to Asian-American refugees. Later, he was hired by the Asian-American Resource Center as Program Coordinator to address leadership and organizational capacity needs. For more than six years, Randy worked with ethnically diverse immigrant groups, addressing various unmet refugee needs.
Currently, in addition to working as the CEO of Angkor Resource Center, Randy works with refugee self-help groups, providing individualized assistance and training to community leaders as they organize to create their own voice and gain greater access to services and resources for community members.” – Marquez Allen, Communications Intern at Angkor Resource Center.
