Welcome to the Southeast Asian Community Center!
We are a multi-service non-profit organization serving Southeast Asians locally and nationally and small businesses in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area seeking financing and management assistance.
The Southeast Asian Community Center develops and administers programs that serve the needs of the Southeast Asian communities of Northern California. Our programs support self-sufficiency, economic viability, advocacy, community empowerment, leadership development, acculturation, and cultural preservation in these communities. A second, but equally, important part of our work is advising and financing small businesses in the region. We work with entrepreneurs and organizations of all ethnicities who are interested in small business and economic development in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area.
