Kwangja Kwon, an Evolve participant in 2010, developed an expansion plan for Assisted Living Program, Grace Place, at Riverside Plaza. The Korean Service Center (KSC) operates a culturally competent assisted living program for Korean speaking elders in the Cedar Minneapolis public housing complex.

Kwangja expanded the service to included about twenty elders who needed services but did not receive them because they live in the Riverside Plaza. Services included daily Korean meals, weekly home chore services, nurse visits, social activities, medication setup, etc., to the low income Korean elderly residents.
