Little Tokyo Service Center

Little Tokyo Service Center builds stable supportive communities that strengthen people and preserve communities of color in greater Los Angeles. We are the only bilingual multi-service agency and community developer in the Japanese American community and serve more than 18,000 low-income people of all ethnicities annually. With events like “Starry Night in Little Tokyo” we help preserve one of the last three Japantowns in the United States and ensure that Little Tokyo remains a cultural home to the thousands of Japanese Americans in Southern California and a vibrant ethnic community for all to experience.
