Mission Statement

To enhance the quality of life and cultural values of our children, youth, and their families through a comprehensive program of services and community participation.

Description

The West Bay Pilipino Multi-Services, Inc. (West Bay) is the consolidation of six (6) established community services agencies that have served the Pilipino community in San Francisco since 1968: Filipino Youth Coordinating Committee, Sandigan Newcomer Service, United Filipinos for Equal Employment, Pilipino Legal Defense and Education Fund, Services for Filipino Seniors, and the Liwanag Resources.

These agencies had a wide range of expertise in community services. The consolidation of these agencies to West Bay has greatly improved community programs and developed a more coordinated service delivery system for the community. West Bay was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization on October 21, 1977.

Since its inception, West Bay has adopted the South of Market (SOMA) area as its priority neighborhood because of the significant presence of Pilipino Americans in the community and the importance of SOMA in the history of Pilipino migration in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Community involvement and responsibility are the foundation of our mission. Integral to the success of the agency is the understanding and practice of direct involvement of the community in the formulation of priorities and programs, and the active involvement of its staff and Board of Directors.

Our current services are:

* SOMA's Next Generation Mentorship Program

A newly revised free after-school program that provides homework assistance, tutoring, mentoring, and fun, educational, and recreational activities designed for students from grades one through eight.

* API Case Management

Provides families with a comprehensive family assessment that is used to pinpoint the specific needs and goals of each family. Works closely with families in fulfilling the needs and goals of the household through the use of a Family Service Plan. Provides families with the resources that can be of assistance with their specific situation.

* Breast Cancer Support Group

(More details coming soon.)
