The Turkish-American Community Center(s) (Turk Evi) have been established by ETAC-USA to serve the changing needs of the Turkish-American Community in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The role and function of the community centers is and will be an ever-changing one – while serving as places for recreation, leisure, and socialization, the centers also to support for youth development, social services, safety, neighborhood vitality, health, and education.
The community centers provide resource and referral services in their specific locations, in the areas such as Education, Health, Employment, Legal.
