KCSC 24/7 victim services hotline

24-Hour Hotline Service (1-888-987-4561) KCSC’s domestic violence program supports emergency services to help victims stay safe in emergency situations through a Korean/Chinese/English language hotline service.

Crisis intervention

KCSC provides crisis intervention over the phone or appointment-based in-person meetings in the office during the pandemic. Victim service staff helps survivors assess the danger they are in and works on safety planning with survivors. Based on an assessment, victim service staff could assist survivors’ immediate needs by providing comprehensive case management.

Emergency financial assistance

KCSC 2019 data shows 64% of our DV clients are unemployed. Financial difficulties are among the top reasons that trap victims in an abusive relationship. KCSC’s “Safety Net” program raises money and receives donations from the community every year, and with that money, KCSC helps to assist clients with rent, transportation, grocery, and utility payment short-term as well as supports their independent financial planning in the long-term.

Individualized case management and wrap around services

KCSC supports the pursuit of victims’ safety, empowerment, and welfare by establishing a support plan according to the individual situation of each victim.

KCSC provides support services in one place for a victim’s convenience by working in conjunction with other KCSC programs.

On-site legal clinic and referrals to pro-bono lawyers

Court accompaniment

Navigating the court system could be daunting. KCSC’s victim service provides court companionship and emotional support for survivors during the petition and court hearing processes. 

Transitional housing

KCSC provides a Transitional Housing Program for victims of homelessness due to domestic violence. The program provides shelter and support services to survivors of Domestic Violence and their dependent children, ensuring a safe and affordable housing option within the community. Depending on eligibility requirements and each survivor’s circumstance, the length of stay and type of support can be determined and adjusted. 

KCSC’s Transitional Housing Program honors each individual’s process and timeline for support depending on each survivor’s situation and goals. The Transitional Housing Program staff will support victims through planning and case management to find permanent homes.
