The mission of the Sacramento Chinese Community Service Center (the Center) is to assist new immigrants, refugees, and other underserved individuals in the Greater Sacramento area to achieve economic self-sufficiency, social empowerment, and cultural appreciation. The Center was founded in 1978 to aid newly arrived Chinese immigrants in dealing with the myriad challenges of immigration and cultural adaptation. Today, we strive to honor and preserve each person's culture of origin. The purpose of this organization is to assist new immigrants, refugees and other underserved individuals in the greater Sacramento area to achieve economic self-sufficiency, social empowerment, and cultural appreciation. The Center accomplishes this mission by providing quality educational, vocational, human services and health programs to these individuals.
In the last two decades, we have expanded our programs to assist non-Chinese immigrants, refugees, and other disadvantaged groups within the Sacramento area, serving more than 5,000 multicultural clients daily. Through our alliance with Sacramento City Unified School District and Twin Rivers Unified School District, we currently manage out-of-school time partnerships within 25 schools that provide social services, employment training, health education, and youth programming in Sacramento. In 2013, The Center was selected by the Region 3 Association of School Administrators to receive the Partnership in Educational Excellence Award recipient for our efforts to promote effective educational performance, enhanced students achievement, and strong community involvement. Our partnerships with the Sacramento Employment and Training Agency, United Way California Capital Region, 180 Degrees Social Emotional Learning Program, California Department of Public Health, and other community organizations support this work.
