From Korean Resource Center
As we approach the end of the year, we extend our deepest thanks to you for your continued support. 2012 was an eventful year, marked with many accomplishments.
We served 11,564 immigrants and low income families in greater Los Angeles from assistance with Medicare Part B and naturalization to foreclosure prevention. KRC’s cultural troupes BaRam Sori and JangGu HakDang delivered spirited performances at rallies and festivals including the Lunar New Year Street Festival.
In April, Hee Joo Yoon, KRC’s Program Director was honored with the Champions of Change award for its foreclosure prevention services, and later met with President Obama in Washington, DC.
Days after the implementation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, KRC counseled more than 7,000 families and assisted 700 with their applications. With community support, KRC raised enough funds to award Dream Scholarships to 17 talented immigrant students.
For the 2012 elections, more than 180 volunteers reached out to 55,011 voters to vote and identified 84 percent community support for Prop 30. On Election Day, California voters passed Prop 30 which would increase revenue to support our state’s schools, colleges & universities, and social service programs.
You were a part of this work and why we succeeded. As we end the year, we hope you could make an end of year contribution to KRC. Your generous contribution will be directed for college internship stipends for students who would like to work for KRC.
KRC’s college interns provide critical services and information to limited English proficient seniors, immigrant parents and youth on public health insurance programs and access to higher education. Please help us raise $10,000 --- enough to support ten interns in 2013.
