CCACC was established in November 6, 1982, founded by Ned Li, Chian-Li Jen, Samuel Peng, Su-Min Chou, and Chih-Hsiang Li. The original name was Capital Chinese Americans Community Center but changed to Chinese Culture and Community Service Center, Inc. in 1983.
During the early years, the focus was on providing facilities for the Chinese community, but it has gradually expanded its offerings to reach more people and provide more services. In 2011, CCACC moved its headquarters to 9366 Gaither Road and has continued to expand, extending to 9318 Gaither Road as well. CCACC now has seven departments, 30 clubs, and over 1,000 members, all working together to enhance this community.
CCACC has firmly established itself as a social services organization and is proud to be one of the largest grass root organizations in the Washington Metropolitan area that is approved by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. With the support of volunteers and donors, CCACC hopes to continue growing, bettering its services, and reaching more people in the community to build a brighter future.
