“Hamkae Center developed into something more than just a community organization for me... it was the first place where I found a sense of community since college. Not only did it allow me to fulfill my desire to give back to the community, I received something better in return.

It is the fact that Hamkae Center listens to its constituents and supports its members that has me coming back.”

Jeanna L.Hamkae Center member & longtime supporter
