Japanese American Service Committee

About the Company

The Japanese American Service Committee (JASC) has served its community with great care and integrity for 77 years. JASC was founded by community members, with support from prominent local academics, in late 1945, and incorporated as the Chicago Resettlers Committee in 1946 in conjunction with the closing of the Chicago office of the War Relocation Authority. The organization’s initial focus was on jobs and housing for the tens of thousands of Japanese Americans arriving in Chicago from incarceration camps. By the mid-1950s, the organization was renamed as the Japanese American Service Committee reflecting its shift to providing social services. JASC supported seniors with the building of the Heiwa Terrace Retirement Community and the Keiro Long Term Care Facility, as well as creating its Home Support Services and Adult Day Services. Since then, JASC’s programs have evolved to encompass a myriad of community, cultural, and educational programs serving not only the Japanese American community but the broader multi-racial and ethnic communities at large.
