Our Mission

Peninsula Family Service strengthens our community by providing children, families, and older adults the support and tools to realize their full potential and lead healthy, stable lives.

Our Vision

We envision a community where opportunity, financial stability, and wellness are secured for all.

Our Values


DEI anti-racist value statement:
Peninsula Family Service (PFS) is committed to being an actively anti-racist organization working towards equity, opportunity, financial stability, and wellness for all. As part of that commitment, we center our program participants in our decision-making, prioritize racial equity work to ensure our policies and practices address racial bias, and examine where PFS perpetuates racial inequities. We will continue to engage in learning and action to make PFS more inclusive, equitable, and representative of the communities that we serve.

Peninsula Family Service provides comprehensive services that support individuals and families at various stages of life. Originally a small organization founded in 1950, Peninsula Family Service has grown to recognize the need for innovative, professionally-led, locally-targeted solutions to secure the wellness and stability of our neighbors. The community has rallied behind this mission, providing fundraising support and volunteers to establish and grow expert-led programs.

The Bay Area has grown and evolved over many decades, and we have been there every step of the way – providing support, caring for our neighbors, and becoming a deeply trusted part of this community. We are grateful to share our legacy and ongoing mission with so many members of our community, as we continue to bring support, education, and resources to those who need it most.
