TCC was founded in 1991 as a member of the Healthy Boston coalition. Its mission is to serve as an information network and to improve the quality of life in Chinatown and Boston’s Asian community. The coalition is led by an 8-member executive committee with two co-chairs, secretary, treasurer, and at-large members. In 2011, TCC sponsored three projects, raised $126,050 through donations, grants and memberships dues, and increased its capacity by hiring 2 full-time staff and 1 consultant and expanded the executive committee by 60%.
