About Korean Community Center of the East Bay
Since 1977, Korean Community Center of the East Bay (KCCEB) has been uniquely positioned to serve the Asian community in the Bay Area. After the 1965 Immigration Act which allowed for an influx of immigrants from Asia, KCCEB was one of five Bay Area organizations developed in the 1970s to support the resettlement and community health of Asian immigrants and refugees. KCCEB has evolved into a unique entry point for Korean and other immigrant children, youth, adults and families who have nowhere else to turn to for their essential support, including health access, social and legal counseling and case management, mental health, tobacco cessation education and support for survivors of IPV.
KCCEB is currently comprised of three divisions namely the Immigration Integration Program, the Community Health Access program and the Community Wellness Program. The Immigration Integration Program creates access to legally authorized no to low cost immigration services that are needed for immigrants to transition into American life and become engaged members of society. The Community Health Access Program creates access to affordable health care and social services including healthcare enrollment and literacy education, social service support, case management and health promotion to seniors, a Korean language information and referral service and community capacity building through the development of health advocates. The Community Wellness Program addresses the mental health and substance use prevention needs of Asians in North Alameda County. The program raises mental health awareness, reduces mental health stigma with an attention to cultural affinities and values of monolingual low-income East Asians (e.g., Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Mongolian), as well as offering tobacco intervention programs.
