As this pandemic is drawing out longer, KFAMâ€™s financial needs continue to grow. We need not only to provide basic life essentials to our clients, but we need to ensure they also continue receiving critical direct services. If you are in a place where you can give back, we ask that you make a donation. This will allow us to keep our operations running smoothly, meet the increased demand in crisis services, and increase the number of clients to whom we provide flexible financial support. We do not know what the coming days and weeks may hold, but we do know that KFAM will work closely with our most vulnerable community members to keep them safe and healthy during this crisis.
Weâ€™re in this together. Please support KFAM.
KFAMâ€™s Korean bilingual/bicultural therapists help individuals (youth and adults) with relationship problems, depression, anxiety, grief or loss, trauma, marital conflicts, parent-child conflicts, family violence, anger, acculturation stresses, and workplace issues. Medication support and group counseling are also available.
KFAM operates nation's first and only Asian Pacific Islander (API)-focused Foster Family Agency with services available in Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese and Tagalog. The Asian Foster Family Initiative (AFFI) recruits and trains API resource (foster) families to provide culturally sensitive homes to API foster children.
KFAMâ€™s Domestic Violence program provides victims of intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking with Korean bilingual/ bicultural crisis intervention, counseling, financial support, and cultural-specific education and outreach. As well as providing perpetrator accountability group programs.
KFAMâ€™s Child & Adult Wellness Program provides individuals with education and resources to meet their diverse needs and enhance their quality of life. Whether through our Child Care Food Program, Tobacco Prevention, or senior yoga classes. Our services help our clients meet gaps in essential health and human services.
We serve over 6,000 adults and children each year with high quality, holistic services that respond directly to the challenges among Korean and Asian American families undergoing trauma or adaptation and acculturation stresses.
KFAM understands the needs of the local Korean community and can better reach out to those who are underserved. Supporting KFAM to achieve its goals also helps us to remain true to our mission and to our organizational roots. We are committed to supporting agencies like KFAM to help meet outstanding needs in our community.

Through KFAM Counseling, I learned conflict resolution skills, stopped drinking, and made new friends. Counseling was like finding a good friend to talk to when I was lonely and sad. People go to the doctor when they have a cold, but in my culture, there is shame involved in seeing a therapist. I wish more Koreans could see it that way.

Over time the shattered pieces inside of us healed. With each passing day, I rediscovered more and more of myself. I started to notice a familiar woman in the mirror. I had always been there, but I had just needed some help and support. Â

With my counselor's help, I could see myself through someone elseâ€™s eyes. I finally understood. I saw a different person inside me, who loved myself and was always on my side. I saw that I was the only one who was so mean and negative to myself. I decided that I was the only one who could help myself. I want to change the way I thought and saw the world. I want to accept myself.
One thing I like about KFAM, is that theyâ€™re kind of like a one-stop shop. Theyâ€™ll be there for you.Â Â
