Welcome to SFCEC 三藩市社區資源中心 — 歡迎您
San Francisco Community Empowerment Center (SFCEC) is a non-profit community agency that provides assistance and training for the San Bruno and San Francisco Community.
Our goal is to build up a sense of community belonging with each other. We want to see an increase of community participation within our society. We want people to better understand their own position as a person, as a worker, as an immigrant and as a citizen. We educate people where and how to get help for themselves and people around them. We believe healthy people create healthy communities.
We advocate for people’s basic needs and rights. We structure to provide support services and education to empower people to have self-control and self-empowerment. We help people to voice out their concerns. We provide needs assessment for overall environment in people’s surrounding such as home life, employment situation, neighborhood and communities. Then we provide education and help people to explore their options/solutions, so people can find healthy choices with appropriate support to exercise their options and rights. We believe knowledge is power. We believe justice for all.
Our volunteers are from all walks of life. Many of the volunteers have been through your problems. We understand your needs. We will help you in any way we can within our limited resources. If we can’t have answers to your questions and issues, we will reach out for you. Please, don’t face your problems alone. If one door closes, another door will be opened.
San Francisco Community Empowerment and Support Group, Inc, has been serving clients in our community since 2005. A group of dedicated volunteers came together in 2005, using other community centers to run different functions to serve our society. We incorporated into a 501 (c) (3), a non-profit public and charitable purpose agency in January 2006. We did not have our own physical location until April 2011. Many thanks to our new leader Teresa Duque that she made the impossible become possible. Our first office opens at 2798 San Bruno Ave, in San Francisco, CA 94134 on May 14th, 2011. We are now serving our community in San Francisco as San Francisco Community Empowerment Center because we now have our own center. It is the same non-profit agency we started in 2005
