European American Association
European American Association, located in the West Town area of Chicago, IL, is a not-for-profit organization, established in 1991 and obtaining 501(c)(3) status the following year.
Mr. John Herman the Executive Director of European American Association (EAA), was born and raised in Romania.
The challenges faced by him as a limited English speaking person in his new homeland inspired a desire to ease the transition for other European Americans unfamiliar with their new country and motivated him to start an organization to help them during this difficult period.
After a short time working as a not-for-profit and seeing the need in this mixed cultural community the purpose of EAA greatly broadened.
