“Provide solid foundation”
The Korean-American community in the greater Atlanta area has grown rapidly in the past decades; according to the some estimates, there are around 100,000 Korean-American in the metro Atlanta area. We want to become better representatives of the Greater Atlanta Korean American community. To do this we will continuously strive to earn the trust of both the Korean American community and the mainstream community. We will create strong and stable budget and long-term financial plan so that we can ensure better and continuous support of programs and activities that will benefit both the Korean American and mainstream communities.
By establishing stronger ties with other Korean-American groups and our local churches, we hope to reach out to as many people as possible to learn about their needs and to encourage more involvement. We also want to improve our ties with local government officials and the mainstream community so that we can educate them about the needs of Korean Americans and sot 못 we can become more active citizens. We want to create stronger, more unified organization so that we can continue to be helpful for future generations.
