KYCC is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2021 California Nonprofit of the Year by Assemblymember Miguel Santiago of the 53rd Assembly District. KYCC is one of more than one hundred nonprofits that will be honored by their state senators and assemblymembers for their tremendous contributions to the communities they serve.

KYCC was established in 1975 to support a growing population of at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Today, KYCC is the leading multiservice organization in Koreatown, supporting children and their families in the areas of education, health, housing, and finances. With over 150 employees, most of whom are bilingual in Spanish or Korean, KYCC serves thousands of clients at our eight locations and across Los Angeles County.

“KYCC is honored by the recognition from Assemblymember Miguel Santiago as 2021 Nonprofit of the Year. At a time of great uncertainty and the continued rise in anti-Asian hate, we remain steadfast in our commitment to the Koreatown community to deliver much needed services to those in need,” says Steve Kang, KYCC Director of External Affairs. “We are grateful for the outpouring of support, and we pledge to do our part in helping to make a positive impact in our community.”

“The pandemic and shelter-in-place orders of the past year and a half have put nonprofits – usually hidden in plain sight – in the spotlight,” explains Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits). “California Nonprofit of the Year is an opportunity for our elected officials to celebrate the good work they see nonprofits doing in their districts, and for everyone to appreciate the collective impact of nonprofits in our communities.”
