Join us in standing for a brighter future

This year, come hear the inspiring stories from community leaders who are true agents of change! Every day, they are supporting the well-being of their neighbors and transforming the neighborhoods where they live. We will also hear from immigrant families who have overcome many challenges and are working hard to reach their fullest potential. We'll celebrate their achievement, and together, we'll raise money to change the lives of Asian residents and community for a much brighter future. This can happen through your support at our Annual Fundraising Banquet.

KCSC’s 44th Annual Fundraising Banquet will be held on Sunday March 18th at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, 7920 Jones Branch Drive, McLean, VA 22102. The Reception will start at 5:00PM followed by the Dinner and Program beginning at 6:00PM.

You are agents of change

Client Testimony

Mr. Lee was separated from his mother when he was a child. After 18 years, he found out that she had been living the United States. On December 2006, he took his first step on American soil with his wife and two children. Unfortunately, his life as an immigrant was very different from the “American Dream” he had imagined for himself when he was still in Korea. After losing his job as a pastor, his family’s financial situation declined and eventually hit rock bottom. He could no longer pay his bills and after 3 months of delinquent mortgage payments, his family was evicted from their home. He visited a family shelter, where his two high school children had been volunteering every Saturday, and sought their help. Although he “qualified” to be admitted, the shelter staff advised him not to stay there, reasoning that children who experienced shelter life often lived with shame that could scar their hearts for many years to come.

KCSC's dedicated staff helped Mr. Lee and his family to overcome their financial problems after the eviction. Emergency funds helped Mr. Lee get back on his feet and luckily, soon after, he found a new job. Thanks to KCSC’s Safety Net project, Mr. Lee's family did not have to enter a shelter. The family worked hard and, after 6 months, they were able to move to a new permanent home.

"I believe that what we received from KCSC was not just a financial support, but it was also warm loving care that embraced our family and smoothed away our pain."

This story is not singular. There are many families just like Mr. Lee, who need KCSC's help.

Join us in standing up for and empowering Asian American immigrants.
