The Daejeon Support Center for Foreign Residents (대전외국인주민 통합지원센터) was established under the Daejeon City Ordinance on Support for Foreign Residents, commissioned by the Daejeon Public Agency for Social Service, and operated in conjunction with the Hana Bank Culture Bank project. The Daejeon Support Center for Foreign Resident provides support projects, international exchanges, and cooperation projects to establish an early settlement, adaptation to life, and settlement environment in the region.
Foreign residents in Korea in 2019 have reached more than 220,000 people and the number keeps increasing. The percentage of foreign residents who play an essential role is growing as they become pre-residents of the local community.
To accomplish communication and coexistence of foreign residents within the community and develop a settlement environment through international collaboration, they offer a life, labor, and law interpretation and translation counseling center for the foreign community. Many programs are established to revitalize the network with the leading participation of foreign residents including Korean culture experience, together with day festivals, and foreign student sports competitions.
The Daejeon Support Center aims to create a socially integrated community with respect for diversity in Daejeon City. They focus on the core values of coexistence, respect, communication, and expertise. With beneficiary-centered services, they aim to reduce blind spots and promote a virtuous cycle of early settlement and settlement through assistance for foreign residents and international cooperation.
