Located in San Francisco, the Central American Resource Center—CARECEN—of Northern California provides vital direct services and engages in community development and advocacy to help create a vibrant and thriving Latino immigrant community in San Francisco, the Bay Area, and beyond. We arose from the community and remain firmly a part of it. Founded in 1986 by Salvadoran political exiles and refugees, CARECEN serves more than 10,000 people each year. Our work at CARECEN is grounded in the following principles:

  • Immigration is a human right and individuals have the right to migrate to secure the economic, social, and cultural well-being of their families
  • Immigrants have the right to live in security regardless of their immigration status
  • Immigrants have the right and the capacity to grow, learn, and develop in their new homeland
  • Respect and honor for diverse cultures strengthens movement building and authentic, enduring unity
  • Strong immigrant communities are built through education and civic engagement
