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.
Today we strive to maintain a consistent standard of excellence in serving all low to moderate income individuals and families of any age, nationality and gender by assisting them with their immediate requirements, encouraging self help when possible and offering moral support when ever needed.
