Mission, Vision, and Values
CARECEN empowers and responds to the needs, rights, and aspirations of Latino, immigrant, and under-resourced families in the San Francisco Bay Area, building community leadership to pursue equity and justice.
Rooted in its cultural strengths and inspired by the Central American justice struggles, our diverse immigrant community thrives: Latino families prosper, build effective community institutions, and participate confidently in civic life.
Respect, perseverance, integrity, trust, excellence and a commitment to social justice are CARECEN’s core values. We are committed to living by these in every aspect of our work: in relating to our clients, to our employees and volunteers, and to our community. By following these values we fulfill our mission to provide the highest quality services to change the lives of the immigrant families in our community.
