Community and social service associations

After World War II, in areas where Japanese Americans resettled in large numbers, community and social service organizations were formed to meet their needs. In Seattle, for instance, Nisei (second-generation Japanese Americans) organized and raised funds for a retirement home that would be culturally appropriate for the Issei (first-generation immigrants). Further, some Japanese Americans chose to go into social service work, in part motivated by their wartime incarceration.
