Korean Community Development Services Center (KCDSC)
In 1983, the Korean Crime Prevention Committee was established to promote the safety of Korean business owners in Philadelphia in the midst of a spate of violent crime in the area. The Committee became the Korean Community Development Services Center in 1985, when it began a broader community service operation with one part-time staff member and a budget of $25,000. Gradually, KCDSC grew, establishing a comprehensive roster of service programs which, over the years, has included job counseling and placement, an early learning center, an after-school tutoring program for children, summer youth employment programs, adult literacy education, elderly social security and Medicaid services, a HUD approved housing counseling program, and a housing development program.
