During the summer of 2017, KAC's Summer College Internship Program (SCIP) interns pioneered a project to address the issue of Korean homelessness in Koreatown. Today, you can see what they found in a documentary titled "Invisible Neighbors: Homelessness in Koreatown, Los Angeles." What they discovered is that there is NO data on how many Koreans are homeless in Los Angeles, but Koreans experiencing homelessness do exist. They are our invisible neighbors.
The documentary is only the beginning. These interns are now launching a campaign at invisibleneighbors.funraise.org to address the problem they've uncovered. Now, we need your support to make a difference.
The goal is to raise $6,000 to start creating change: $2,000 to support the "Joy Giver" shelter and $4,000 to fund two student stipends for the collection of data on Korean homelessness in Los Angeles over a 5-month period.
