Instituto Familiar de la Raza

2019 YBCA 100 Honoree

Instituto Familiar de la Raza (IFR) began as a small outpatient mental health clinic, and developed into a community leader in community violence prevention, school-based mental health consultations, family programming, culturally based integrated HIV services, and indigenous/Maya wellness programs. For more than forty years IFR has provided a seamless continuum of health and wellness programs for Chicanos/Latinos in San Francisco.
