Hyepin Im

In an interview with CA Forward Thinkers, Hyepin Im (HAY-pihn ihm) says, “From the beginning, we knew that it made sense to work with churches, because 75% of the Korean community here is connected to their church.  At KCCD, we work through churches to provide access to services for newly arrived and not-so-newly arrived immigrants. Immigrants often see their church as a haven that supports them in so many ways.”

Im is the founder, president and CEO of Korean Churches for Community Development (KCCD), a nonprofit that works nationally to connect local Korean and Asian-American immigrant community with the private and public institutions that affect their lives politically and economically. KCCD’s programs and services include homeownership and foreclosure prevention counseling and small business development training. A new chapter will be opening in DC in the upcoming future.

The Center for Community Economic Development reports that Im partnered with the FDIC and Freddie Mac to develop a Korean curriculum in financial literacy and homeownership, and she implemented a $5 million U.S. Department of Labor workforce development program.
