In 2013, when KYCC opened our most recent affordable housing building–the Menlo Family Apartments—there were over 2,000 applications for 60 units. This clear and overwhelming response illustrated a deep need for affordable housing for the low-income households who reside in our community.

Today, KYCC owns eight different buildings with a total of 209 units in Koreatown. Our commitment to providing affordable housing properties and services began in the wake of the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, when over a thousand buildings across Koreatown were destroyed.

Our Menlo Family Apartments provide permanent and supportive housing for previously homeless families, families with children with mental illness, transition age youth, and low-income families. Not only do we provide our residents with a safe and decent place to live, but we also offer mental health and financial services to our tenants, on site. The Menlo Family Center, located on the first floor of the building, also hosts afterschool programs for elementary, middle and high school students, some who reside in the building and others who live in the neighboring community.

As Koreatown develops, we are committed to protecting and offering affordable units in our neighborhood. KYCC recognizes that an affordable and secure place for individuals and families to live allows them the much-needed stability to grow to their fullest potential.
