Our Stories - Kuk Ying Yip

I immigrated to America over 20 years ago. I am a low-income, monolingual senior. Chinatown CDC’s Housing Counseling staff has helped me countless times on applying for senior and low-income affordable housing units. I have not had a lot of luck so far, but they have given me the strength to never give up.

Empowered through their counseling model and practices, I have become a volunteer for campaigns that affect the future of our city including the Proposition C “Affordable Housing Fund.” I learned to give back to the community and joined community groups instead of living in isolation.
