Donate to Our New Home

We are excited to announce that CARECEN SF signed a lease at 1117 Market Street!

We will be moving from our Mission and Cesar Chavez office (since 2009) to this charming 1920’s building that will significantly increase space for programs and access to critical services for recently arrived immigrant families, transitional aged youth and the growing Latinx community in the SOMA, Tenderloin and Mid-Market area, and to all participants from across the city and Bay Area, given its central location and proximity to the courts and other government institutions our program staff help clients navigate.


This new office will also significantly improve our team’s working environment and help us meet COVID era related air quality and workspace health standards.

This move is urgent and exciting for us since we have more than outgrown our existing space, but most importantly it represents a win for community members living in one of the areas with the highest concentration of poverty and violence in San Francisco. It also means easier access for the greater Bay Area community that seeks our programs – Civic Center BART Station is 20 steps (literally!) away from the main entrance to the building.
