Sacramento Chinese Community Service Center

The Center was founded in 1978 to aid newly arrived Chinese immigrants in dealing with the many challenges of immigration and cultural adaptation. Today, we strive to honor and preserve each person's culture of origin. 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, Elk Grove Unified School District, Twin Rivers Unified School District, Natomas Unified School District, and St. Hope Public Schools, we currently manage out-of-school time partnerships with over 65 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. The Center offers a myriad of social services and summer programming to the local area.

The purpose of this organization is to assist new immigrants, refugees and other under-served 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.


Expanded Learning programs are often funded through grants and, sometimes, one-time district dollars for added support. Unfortunately, grants may be lost and districts budgets tighten creating a threat to the sustainability of these critical programs. Each of the eight high schools across the Sacramento City Unified School District currently offers an Expanded Learning program, known as ASSETs - After School Safety & Enrichment for Teens, that serves over 1,000 students each day in our area. High school students in the ASSETs programs have access to daily tutors for academic support, extra classes offered for credit to help them reach their goal of graduation, as well as enrichment options in music, art, dance, STEAM, and other creative areas. Students who participate in an ASSETs program are also provided a nutritious afternoon snack.

Due to a loss of grant funding, ASSETs is seeking donations (monetary and/or in-kind) to keep these programs running in the coming years. With your contribution, we can ensure that there is an ASSETs program at your local SCUSD high school. We thank you for donating on behalf of our cause and your support of the students in your community.
