About

Mission

The mission of the Japanese Americans’ Care Fund is to provide information and support to the Japanese-American Community for their social needs.  Japanese Americans’ Care Fund fosters care and community growth to create a safe,
fulfilling, and socially enriched environment for Japanese Americans.

Who We Are

The Japanese Americans’ Care Fund provides assistance to those in need among the Japanese and Japanese American residents of the greater Washington DC area.  Since 2000, it has instituted a number of services and activities that are staffed by volunteers.  The Care Fund’s motto is “Caring for Our Community, Sharing Our Knowledge and Resources for Today and a Better Future”.

In 2010, the Care Fund received an official commendation from the Foreign Minister of Japan for its contribution to the welfare of Japanese citizens living in the United States.
