Unhoused Asian American Pacific Islanders are drastically undercounted by housing authorities and homeless service providers. Language and cultural barriers prevent unhoused AAPI from receiving shelter and housing. Our multilingual, multicultural campaign to Count the Uncounted AAPI is the first step in getting services and housing to homeless AAPI. Homeless authorities claim that there are 36 homeless AAPI in Koreatown. When the reality is that there are 700 plus including 200 LGBTQ+ Korean youth.
