Our 
Story


HISTORY & MISSION


The Korean American Family Service Center (KAFSC) is a leading nonprofit organization, in the New York Tri-State area, that supports and empowers adults, youth, and children to lead safe and healthy lives based on dignity, compassion, and mutual respect. KAFSC is committed to preventing and ending domestic violence and sexual assault, and creating a violence-free society.

 

KAFSC was born 32 years ago when a group of concerned community members organized to help women and children suffering from domestic violence and abuse. From its humble beginnings in a church basement with volunteers and consultants dedicated to ending violence within Korean American families, KAFSC has grown over the last 32 years to become the premier nonprofit organization it is today. With the help of our unwavering supporters, we continue to serve those in need and empower our community to break the cycle of violence.

 

Our counseling, education, and advocacy programs for individuals and families in the New York Tri-State area are provided in a culturally and linguistically appropriate setting. All of our services are confidential, bilingual, and free* to the community. 

*Some Hodori after-school programs and court-mandated services are fee-based.
