JASC (Japanese American Service Committee)

About JASC

Founded on August 30, 1946, the Japanese American Service Committee of Chicago originally served the needs of the Issei and Nisei (Japanese immigrants and their American-born children) who left World War II internment camps to resettle in Chicago and start new lives.  As the needs of the community have changed over the years, so, too, have the programs and services provided by the JASC.  The JASC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit social services agency.


JASC engages people of all ages to experience Japanese American history and culture and to improve their well-being through innovative, high quality programs and services tailored to the multicultural community.

We accomplish our mission through the work of highly trained and enthusiastic staff and volunteers and proactive collaboration with other agencies and organizations.
