WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER DONATING TO HANUL FAMILY ALLIANCES?
Hanul Family Alliance was founded in 1987 as a Korean American Senior Center to meet the needs of primarily limited-English-speaking Korean elderly. Today, the agency annually serves over 7,000 individuals and families of all ages and ethnicities by providing a broad range of community services to meet the diverse needs of our community members. The main office in Chicago, located in Albany Park, still serves as the comfort zone for our Korean seniors that reside in many different senior buildings on the north side of the city. Since the inception of the new mission and vision in 2006, Hanul has expanded as a resource center for a wide variety of ethnic populations in the neighborhood. The suburban satellite office in Northern Cook County was established in 1999 to meet the needs of changing immigrant populations with rapid suburbanization. In 2012, Hanul launched its second satellite office in Lake County to meet the needs of the Korean population in Lake County.

Through the lunch program, Hanul helps seniors overcome alienation by providing opportunities to find social support, camaraderie, and a deeper sense of community.
Behavioral Health: Hanul provides health seminars, group workshops, and screenings in order to promote the wellness of the medically disadvantaged in the Chicagoland area.
