Our Legacy: the Power to Grow
In a nation built by immigrants striving to create a brighter future, Good Samaritan believes struggling newcomer families and their children deserve the opportunity to succeed in their new home, and to strengthen our shared democracy. Every day, we help young children, youth and their families to obtain the skills, support and resources they need to overcome the challenges of poverty and displacement, and to improve the world we share.
For over 120 years Good Samaritan has helped immigrants to San Francisco from around the world to build their futures in their new home. Today, we mainly work with low-income Latino immigrants from Mexico, Central and South America.
Our mission is to help immigrant families access needed services, develop self-sufficiency, and participate fully as members of the community.
Your support makes a real difference in the lives of thousands of hardworking people striving to build a better future. Thank You.

“I arrived from rural Mexico at the age of fourteen, facing language barriers and the challenges of poverty. In the 11th grade I became involved with Good Samaritan Family Resource Center through its coordination of the Latino Student Union. My grades improved and I started working with my peers to organize school and community events. I am now a Youth Leader at GoodSamFRC, mentoring other young people who are eager for a chance to find the right path, make a difference, and become the leaders of our future.” — Luis Becerra
