KYCC helps limited English speakers who are having difficulty communicating with their cell phone, Internet, cable, gas, electric, water and phone providers. A bilingual (Korean or Spanish) Consumer Advocate can help you fix billing errors, find emergency funding for utility bills, and untangle other issues.
