With access to the right information and supports, many problems can be resolved or even avoided entirely. Through the programs, groups and projects listed below, JSS hopes to encourage supportive relationships among community members and increase access to information in Japanese.

Craft Club

Won’t you join our Craft Club in making various handicraft items? These are fun to make and practical, as well. You will be able to make friends with people from different backgrounds, too.

Holiday Drive

An annual year-end event where JSS collects items from members of the community which is then shared with those who have fallen on hard times. Volunteers deliver the gifts.

Hot Lunch

JSS serves lunches to members of Wynford Seniors, a group that meets regularly at JCCC. With the help of volunteers, warm lunches seasoned in the Japanese manner are served for their enjoyment on the third Wednesday of each month. Through the sale of these lunches, income is generated for use as part of our operating funds.


In this program, our volunteers provide those who might become isolated for some reasons with friendly visiting.
