Annual Report
2013 Annual Report
As I celebrate my 30th year as a member
of the Board of Directors of LTSC, I consider my
service as one of the highlights of my life. While LTSC has distinguished itself
as one of the premier social service and community development organizations
in Los Angeles it has maintained its spirit and commitment to serving people.
The aesthetic design for LTSC’s 2013
Annual Report cover is inspired by the
artistic manhole covers of Japan. The
content and images selected share a
common theme of “bridging generations.”
The backdrop is a section of sidewalk along the Historic Little Tokyo District. This particular
Two recent initiatives, Far East Lounge and Sustainable Little Tokyo, demonstrate
this commitment. In addition, a new design for Budokan of Los Angeles “BoLA”
has been developed that will provide a multipurpose center serving a variety
of recreational, cultural, and educational needs. Significant funds for BoLA
were raised in 2013 and we are preparing to launch a major community capital
campaign to complete the project. On behalf of the Board and Staff of LTSC,
we thank you for your continued support of our efforts.
Alan Nishio
President, Board of Directors
LTSC has made great strides forward this year
including becoming a NeighborWorks Charter Member, opening the Far East
Lounge and building new affordable housing. We especially made great progress
toward realizing the community dream of a recreation center. We’ve raised almost
half of the $23 million we need for the project. By 2017, Budokan of Los Angeles
“BoLA” the ‘home court for all’ will be an important part of a new and vibrant
Little Tokyo. To get a sneak peak, see the renderings on pages 6-7. I look forward
to the basketball games, the martial arts tournaments, the special events on the
rooftop garden and the after-school activities. I hope you will join us in the capital
campaign phase of this great project.
Thank you for your support of LTSC.

Volunteer Spotlight
Marsha Watanabe:
Always Thinking About Kosumosu
“Ten years ago when my son went off to
college I had extra time and I wanted to help
out in the community,” Marsha Watanabe
remembers. “On LTSC’s website I saw a
new program called Kosumosu.” Kosumosu
Transitional Housing for Survivors of Domestic
Violence provides housing and services to
women and their children. “I work in the
mental health field, and this program caught
my attention,” Marsha explains.
LTSC does so much
for the community,
I want to give back
and help out
Since then Marsha has done so much for
Kosumosu. She has made in-kind donations
for residents including kitchen items, school
supplies and toiletries. “The moms have been
in a difficult situation and are putting their lives
back together. I want to help them in any way
I can, including providing things they need.
I wish I could do more,” says Marsha.
Marsha provides Thanksgiving gift baskets for
families and shops for Christmas presents for
the children. “It is fun to go shopping during
the holidays for the children,” she said. Marsha
has helped organize two garage sales and last
year she and her sister planted a vegetable
garden at Kosumosu.
From left: Vivian Lee of LTSC, Gary and Marsha Watanabe and Linda Yokoyama (seated) at a garage
sale fundraiser for Kosumosu.
“I want to help the LTSC staff as much as I
can,” explains Marsha. “LTSC does so much
for the community, I want to give back and
help out. I have a note on my desk that says
‘Kosumosu’ so I am always thinking about
Kosumosu,” Marsha says.

Helping People
“Avoid Scams and Plan Wisely”
A kind and selfless woman, Yoshi Kida, an
88-year old Japanese woman, was always
willing to help others. She lived in a modest
apartment in Beverly Hills, where her neighbors
saw her as the matriarch of the complex. A
former housekeeper, Yoshi worked for people
like Frank Sinatra.
Did you know that 12.6 million people were
victims of identity fraud in the U.S. last year,
totaling $20.9 billion in financial losses? And
that Asian Americans are the most likely group
to experience identity theft? In October 2013,
200 people gathered in Torrance to learn how
to avoid being a victim of a scam and also how
to plan their financial future. With a generous
grant from Citi Community Development, LTSC
presented “Avoid Scams and Plan Wisely, A
Financial Seminar for Asian American Seniors
and Caregivers.” LTSC was very proud to have
Congresswoman Maxine Waters give the
keynote address.
Unfortunately, Yoshi’s generous nature was
taken advantage of by a friend who borrowed
money but never repaid it. Unable to pay her
rent Yoshi was threatened with eviction. Jewish
Family Services referred her to LTSC for help.
“All she had was her Japanese passport,”
explains Jessica Kanai, Yoshi’s social worker
at LTSC.
Thankfully, Yoshi’s acquaintance from church
paid her rent. Then Yoshi decided that it was
time to go back to Japan. LTSC contacted an
organization that assists homeless people in
Japan and together they arranged for Yoshi to
go home. Through the generosity of Kansha
Fund, Jewish Family Services, and the City
of Beverly Hills, Yoshi received spending money
and airfare. “She was lucky to be surrounded by
good people,” says Kanai.

Staff Profile: Tom Sogi
Director of Tenant Services, Tom has been
working with LTSC’s affordable housing
residents for 17 years
All the parents, youth, adults and senior
residents know he is there to help them any
way he can. Instead of us telling you how
great he is, we thought we would let the
residents tell you about him:
“Tom is very supportive, compassionate,
caring for people, consistent… does what he
says, always on board. He asks the tenants
what they want to do and helps set-up events.
He cares for the kids and is compassionate
with everyone.” — Bessie Lewis
“One of the mentors that really cared for the
people around him.” — Miguel Hernandez
“An excellent person with the tenants.
Humanitarian, very respectful, very sensitive
to everyone’s needs; a person that remained
neutral and humble despite his position. He
always treated everyone the same, with respect
and fairness. Good character and always smiling
at everyone… I appreciate all the support
and guidance he provided to my daughter.
— Maria Green
“Tom is a person with a
big wonderful heart. My
children and I are grateful to
him because he has always
been with us. Since they
(children) were little he would give them
advice and has helped everyone. I am very
grateful to him and I know other tenants feel the
same way. — Angelina Tenant
“Tom Sogi’s generosity and kind heart embody
LTSC’s values and mission.” — Meliza Arreola
LTSC’s Partners:
A3M has been a recruitment center for Be The Match, operated
by the National Marrow Donor Program since 1991. Each year
we conduct over 500 donor recruitment drives to increase and
diversify the national marrow registry. More than 400 people who
registered at our recruitment drives have donated their marrow or
blood stem cells to patients with blood cancers.
Japanese Speaking Parents Association of Children with
Challenges (JSPACC) was started by a small group of parents
in 1994 to assist the parents and families of children with special
needs. Parents share information regarding available services and
programs. The association has more than 200 families and professionals enrolled, and has approximately 100 active members.
MiracleKids Festival
Asian Pacific Islander Small Business Program (APT SBP)
Formed in 1999, API SBP is a collaborative of 5 community
organizations: Chinatown Service Center, Koreatown Youth &
Community Center, LTSC, Search to Involve Pilipino Americans
and Thai Community Development Center. API SBP provides
free business counseling and business workshops regarding
business plans, loan applications, access to capital, basic business
preparation and franchise acquisition. In 2013 API SBP served
2,500 people.

Giving Tuesday
2013’s Giving Tuesday was a huge success.
LTSC’s generous donors joined the movement
and donated enough money for the Grace Iino
Child Care Center to purchase a professional
food warmer. Thanks to our donors, we
were able to continue to provide healthy and
nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks to our
little ones with first-rate equipment.
Partners in Progress
Citi Foundation and the Low Income
Investment Fund (LIIF) awarded LTSC
a grant to continue its work developing
a Sustainable Little Tokyo
The Partners in Progress (PIP) initiative will
allow Little Tokyo to work on developing a
sustainability plan that will reduce greenhouse
gas emissions, promote the local economy,
address social equity for all people, and preserve
Little Tokyo’s rich history.
In 2012, LIIF co-published a book with the
Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco called
Investing in What Works for America’s Communities, which found that flexible and dynamic
community “quarterbacks” could change local
community development efforts that are often
disjointed and repetitive. “LTSC is a tremendous
example of an important well-established
community development organization that has
the key factors of a community quarterback
such as local trust, multiple community/social
service offerings, and authentic community
voice,” said John Moon District Manager,
Community Development Federal Reserve
Bank of San Francisco. “LTSC and many other
effective CDCs around the country are wellpositioned to play this important hub and
leadership role in their communities at an even
more enhanced level,” Moon concluded.
The Citi Foundation supported LIIF’s work on
the book and continues to support this model
in 10 regions across the nation, including LA.
LTSC would like to thank Citi Foundation
and LIIF for this opportunity to work with
the community.

Legacy Partners:
Fujioka Family
LTSC received a
generous gift from
the Dick H. and Lily
M. Fujioka Family
Trust. Mr. and Mrs.
Fujioka, residents of
the Bay Area, left a portion of their estate to
charity as a way to give back to the community.
They had two children, Sayo and Gen.
“Our parents grew up valuing community and
wanted to express their gratitude after they
passed away,” Sayo Fujioka stated. “In addition
to being involved in the redress movement
and other activities, they wanted to help in
other ways.”
“LTSC is a very special organization and my
parents were happy to support the work they
are doing in Los Angeles,” Gen Fujioka said.
“Leaving a gift in a will or trust isn’t complicated.

valuing community
and wanted to express

The way my parents chose to give to charity
involved my sister and I and their grandchildren
as well. They set a very positive example for
each of us.” Gen explains. The Family’s Trust
also provided support for the Buddhist church
and two other nonprofits in the Bay Area.
With this gift Mr. and Mrs. Fujioka joined LTSC’s
Legacy Partners. Legacy Partners recognize
donors who support the future of LTSC through
planned giving. LTSC would like to thank the
Fujioka family for their generosity.
