In 2020, Korean American Community Coalition started as a center to serve the community in Los Angeles County. Most, if not all, members were non-English speaking Korean Americans, which was the root of their lack of understanding and desire for government aid. To remedy this issue, we assisted with consultations and applications for Medi-Cal, Medicare, SSA, SSI, Calfresh (food stamps), and low-income/affordable housing. After providing services to about 170 members, we officially became a non-profit organization in 2021. Ever since, our work has expanded tremendously to serve the youth, seniors, low-income, underserved and underrepresented in Los Angeles and Orange County.
To learn more about what we do:
To provide a safe space for Asian American youth to express freely and recognize the opportunities and importance they hold within the community.
For Asian American youth to find their identity through our mentoring and class activities which will build their confidence, self-esteem, and power to be true to themselves.
