Saint Anselm's Cross-Cultural Community Center, located in Garden Grove, California, was created in 1976 as St. Anselm's Immigrant and Refugee Community Center. The organization was formed to provide English classes and other services to Vietnamese refugees who arrived at Camp Pendleton. The services include assistance with housing, legal problems, physical and mental health, disabilities, employment, family problems, and community education. Other services include mentoring, health education and advocacy, women's issues, services for the elderly, and searches for lost or estranged fathers. The organization serves as an open door for information and assistance. St. Anselm's hosts fundraising dinners, art exhibits, and silent auctions to generate funds to keep their program going.
