Good Samaritan’s goal is to partner with immigrants of all ages in San Francisco to build upon their strengths, experiences, and dreams.
Since our start in 1894, Good Samaritan has centered the immigrant community in all we do.
For the last sixty years in particular, Good Samaritan has specialized in meeting the unique needs of Spanish-speaking newcomers arriving in San Francisco. Together, our employees and participants elevate immigrants’ lived experience, promote peer learning, celebrate Latino cultural values, advocate for equity and social justice, and rely on evidence-based practices to position families for lasting success.
Good Samaritan offers immigrants membership in bilingual learning communities that meet regularly. These include:
ONE-ON-ONE SUPPORT FOR PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS
Good Samaritan welcomes Spanish-speakers new to our organization to one-on-one meetings with a friendly, bilingual member of our team. Together, he or she will help connect your family to childcare, school, food, classes, immigration services, other Latino-friendly organizations, and more.
