Las Posadas @ Cesar Chavez school // San Francisco

Las Posadas @ Cesar Chavez school // San Francisco

The mission of Instituto Familiar de la Raza, Inc. (IFR) is to promote and enhance the health and well-being of Chicanos/Latinos and multicultural/multiracial youth.

That mission is realized through a continuum of mental health, HIV-related and social services including health promotion and prevention, early intervention, case management, clinical mentoring, family support, comprehensive behavioral health services, and cultural/spiritual activities and practices.

IFR was founded in 1978 as the first Chicano/Latino focused mental health center in San Francisco.

Over the past 28 years, the agency has evolved into a multi-service community health and social service agency with over 80 bilingual/multicultural and multidisciplinary staff. The agency serves approximately 4,000 clients and their families each year through its multiple programs. IFR serves children, youth, adults and families/caretakers, and has an extensive history of working collaboratively with other agencies to meet the needs of our clients and the Mission District community.


Las Posadas // San Francisco


Dear Friends of Instituto Familiar de la Raza,

The holiday season is special when family, friends and community are together. We have shared good times and bad, and continue to thrive as one community. All of us at IFR are grateful to have such trusted and supportive friends and allies.

For some families, however, the devastating effects of immigration, trauma, mental health illness, displacement, or LGBTQ family rejection make it hard for them to celebrate this year. You can help change that.

Your donations and support throughout the year have allowed Instituto Familiar de la Raza to serve over 4,000 people this year. Next year, we will need your help to serve even more Chicano/Latino/Indígena children, youth, adults, and families.

Donate today to help fund health and wellness programs that help create strong and sustainable communities, and ensure that through reunification, violence prevention, behavioral health services and LGBTQ support, more families and individuals will enjoy the holiday season with the people they love.

Your donation funds programs that help create resilient communities and make the hope of sharing the holiday seasons with loved ones a reality.

Please, help us in our goal to continue creating one community. Go to http://ifrsf.org/contribute/ to make an online contribution to IFR.

On behalf of the the Board and staff of IFR, we wish you and your loved ones comfort, peace, and joy.
