In the community economic development field, LTSC focuses on economic and cultural revitalization as well as historic preservation. LTSC has developed: 425 units of affordable housing; technical assistance and training for low-income ethnic minority entrepreneurs; Downtown LA's only community technology center offering classes and access to the internet and computers; award-winning historic preservation projects; community organizing for low-income residents; child development programs for low income children; after school and weekend mentoring programs for low income youth; and a Family Literacy program.

LTSC also provides culturally and linguistically appropriate social services to Little Tokyo residents along with the broader Japanese American and other API populations in the area. These include an array of senior support programs, a domestic violence program with a transitional shelter, child abuse prevention programs, health education programs, and programs for homeless assistance.

In community collaborations, peer organizations selected LTSC as the lead agency for the Asian Pacific Islander Small Business Program, a comprehensive business assistance program involving 5 API nonprofit groups. LTSC also sponsors Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches, a bone marrow donor outreach program, and the Asian Pacific Islander Older Adults Task Force, a coalition of 50 agencies addressing quality of life issues for older API's.
