KCWA Family and Social Services, formerly known as the Korean Canadian Women’s Association, is a non-profit and charitable organization established in 1985 by a group of women who were concerned about immigrant women and family issues. However, we now serve women, men, seniors and youth.
Our mission statement is “Building the Korean-Canadian community, one person at a time.” We aim to empower the Korean Canadian community by providing culturally sensitive and linguistically appropriate services and programs that are aimed to fight domestic violence, poverty and inequity as well as to enhance the well-being of immigrant families.
Over the last 37 years, we have provided individual counselling for settlement-related matters and family issues. We have conducted regular programs and seminars for career development, parenting, finances, accessing social benefits, education, and legal information. We have also done several projects and public awareness campaigns that have been designed to support raising community issues.
We continue to serve our clients, fulfill our mission, and continue to grow to take a pivotal role in our community through volunteers, donors, and community members’ support. We can help more immigrants with your participation.
We are always looking for great people who want to combine their professional talents with a commitment to KCWA’s mission.
