Our grant will assist to expand its bilingual and bicultural social services to undeserved Japanese American and Japanese-speaking older adults in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County.

LTSC founded in 1979 by a group of Japanese Americans activists who wanted to form a multipurpose social service center, LTSC aimed to provide linguistically and culturally sensitive social services to the Little Tokyo community and the broader Japanese American community in Southern California.

LTSC seeks to expand its bilingual and bi-cultural social services to undeserved Japanese American and Japanese-speaking older adults in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County. In the spring of 2016, LTSC opened a modest satellite office located at the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute. Their service expansion offers increasing the hours for walk-in clients, more care management services, and recruiting and training capable volunteers to increase the capacity of their social workers.
