Program Overview

In 1997,Won Community Service Center (WCSC) was established with the mission to nurture and empower people who are impoverished. WCSC provides for low-income,
low-English proficiency individuals and minorities in the areas of education, counseling, and social work- in partnership with community and schools. Volunteers work with WCSC to fulfill community needs. WCSC's services include: English as a second language/Citizenship education, legal counseling for
immigrants and their families, counseling for access to medical service, senior citizens' benefits, community service, and cultural events. ** PLEASE NOTE THAT GRADE SCHOOL STUDENTS ALSO MAY JOIN ESL/CITIZENSHIP CLASSES

Mission Statement

The Won Community Service Center was founded by immigrants with a strong and enduring courage in establishing, not only for themselves but for others also,
the righteousness inherent in the lifelong values of physical security, personal responsibility, education, intergenerational morality and principles, relational organization within society, and the fulfillment of the expression of humanity. Thus, the community and our clientele are the heart of our mission
and daily work. Won Community Service Center's long-term goals are to teach clients self-sufficiency in contribution for families and communities, and to integrate into English-speaking society of the United States of America.
