On September 17, 2022, KYCC’s Housing Prevention & Outreach Program successfully launched its first Town Hall Meeting in Koreatown at KAFLA. 47 people were in attendance and 650 people joined through the YouTube livestream.
The purpose of the program is to help those who are at risk of becoming homeless, have been served an eviction notice, unlawful detainer, or who have landlord and tenant disputes that need reconciliation or legal counsel.
The meeting provided access to resources, triage legal services, and one-time financial relief assistance. Additionally there were speakers from community service organizations who help file supporting documents and provide a free legal and/or advocacy channel to give legal advice for our community members.
”I feel this Town hall will be the segue into a great change we need to see in the community supporting small businesses, landlords, and clients,” says Chivas Mays, KYCC’s Housing Services Manager.
The event was hosted in partnership with KAFLA (Korean American Federation of Los Angeles), LAFLA (Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles), ICLC (Inner City Law Center), HRC (Housing Rights Center), HOPICS (Homeless Outreach Program Integrated Care System), AAAJ (Asian Americans Advancing Justice) and was funded by the Counsel District 10 Office.
