LTSC is working to bring a decades-old community dream to LA’s Little Tokyo—a multipurpose sports and community center.
The Far East Lounge is a Little Tokyo gathering space for seniors and others to connect and enjoy activities that promote wellness.
Through the +LAB initiative, LTSC teams up with artists and arts institutions to find imaginative ways to empower the Little Tokyo community.
The First Street North block of Little Tokyo is a critical part of the past and future of our historic neighborhood.
“LTSC is always there for us. They’re like that family member that always checks in on you.”
“It’s difficult to be vulnerable, but there is hope. Don’t give up! I used to be isolated and afraid, but after finding LTSC my life has changed for the better.”
“I’d like to thank [LTSC] for helping me and my family...and being there for us at all times. I look forward to the virtual workshops every week, and I feel very proud of myself and the people around me for being able to get through all of this together.”
