The following organizations are housed at our office in San Jose:
Silicon Valley African American Cultural Center Project
The San Jose, the Capital of the Silicon Valley, has always been known for its diversity and cultural crossroads. Historically, African Americans have forefront in civic works, education and technological development in the Silicon Valley. It is because of this cultural richness that created a need for a central location for cultural preservation in the Valley. The Cultural Center Project is a joint venture between the African-American Community Services Agency (AACSA) and the Antioch Housing and Economic Development Corporation (AHEDC) of Antioch Baptist Church. These two organizations have partnered to develop the only Cultural Center of its kind in the Silicon Valley.
