Mission Statement

IFR's mission is to promote the health and well-being of diverse communities in San Francisco with a primary emphasis on the Chicano/Latino community.

Description

Instituto Familiar de la Raza, (IFR) has grown from a grassroots community based struggle to ensure the availability of appropriate mental health services for the Latino/Chicano community to a respected multi-social services agency working with multiple communities in San Francisco.

IFR strives to achieve its mission by providing a range of mental health and social services, family support, mentoring and HIV services that reflect the spiritual, cultural, socio-political and economic reality of individuals, families, and communities served.
