The center was established on April 16, 1994 in Chinatown Seattle Area. At that time the space only 2000 square feet which consisted of one small meeting room and one office. However, the center serves six states including Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana and Alaska.
To cope with increasing demand from overseas compatriot communities, in 1996, the center moved to 501 S. Jackson Street in International District of downtown Seattle. It consisted of one conference room, one small classroom, one library, one computer room and two offices.
The parking problem was one of the disadvantages when the center was located in Chinatown Seattle. Due to the fact that football (Qwest) and baseball (Safco) fields are in the Chinatown area, traffic is usually heavily congested and parking is difficult to find especially in the tournament season. Therefore, when the lease of Chinatown center expired in 2007, the center has moved to the city of Bellevue in the east Seattle area where the economy and population is growing rapidly. Currently, the center consists of one multipurpose auditorium (130 people capacity), one classroom (20 people capacity), one computer room (12 people capacity), one library and three offices.
