Our organization was founded in 1972 as part of California’s Asian-American civil rights movement.  Our early leaders mobilized campaigns to make public services available to both Chinatown and the Asian-American community at large.  In fact, our first Executive Director, Dr. Lucinda Lee Katz, was one of the plaintiffs in the landmark 1974 U.S. Supreme Court case Lau v. Nichols that legalized bilingual and English-as-a-Second-Language education in our nation’s public schools.

As a result of this activism, CCCC remains involved in broader neighborhood and community issues.  This level of engagement allows us to impact a larger population than our direct service clients. 

  • Chinatown Community Children's Center is one of the oldest existing non-profit early education centers in San Francisco – having successfully provided more than 3,000 families in the Bay Area with quality bilingual-bicultural care and education
  • We provide care for 84 children, ages 2 to 5 years – over 80% of our children come from families below the standard income level
  • In a nurturing learning environment, CCCC children receive nutritious meals, health screenings, and early identification of special needs
  • The Center also provides much-needed social services to the families of our students/children
