The Korean Community Development Services Center (KCDSC) was established as a non-profit organization in 1985 with the goal of providing a comprehensive array of services for low to moderate income individuals and families. Serving a highly diverse community that is 47% African-American, 21% white, 18% Asian-American, 15% Hispanic, 8% other races, and 5% two or more races, we understand that the challenges will not only be difficult, but also abundant and unique.

Since the early 80’s, we have helped thousand of individuals, families, and businesses in our community overcome a countless number of obstacles, whether it be purchasing a first home, facing foreclosure, becoming a certified technician, finding a quality childcare center, or assisting struggling businesses in obtaining more funding. A major factor behind our success is that we value the diversity not only found in our community but also found in our staff.

Currently we are able to provide services in Korean, Spanish, Vietnamese, Laotian, Thai, and Cambodian. The age of staff members range from 23 to 80 years and come from all walks of life. Our team is composed of community members, immigrants, college graduates, PhDs, reverends, veterans, and artists. We find strength in diversity.
