The Hawaiian Community Center Association (HCCA) doing business as the Pacific American Community Cultural Center (PACCC) is a registered nonprofit corporation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Tax Code, and was founded in California on May 1, 1989. The main purpose for which HCCA was organized and PACCC was developed was to raise necessary funds to procure real property (developed or undeveloped) and construct a Community Cultural Center that would provide for all Pacific Americans an atmosphere of
unity and cultural programs that serve to educate the community-at-large about the rich cultural heritage and traditions of the people of the Pacific Islands.
