Your support is working! Vision Academy grew in 2016! With your help we…

  • Served 20% more elementary school children than in 2015, nearly 75% of whom are low-income, at our popular chess and coding summer camp.

  • Increased our enrollment at our afterschool program by 15%. Also, our staff and mentors worked extremely hard to help our children improve their academic standing, with homework completions rates over 90% this year, up 7% from last year.

  • Our Vision Academy instructors brought chess to 13 public schools, where they organized 195 children into weekly chess clubs. Kids love us!


Help us keep this momentum going! Join us at our Power to Grow Event on April 8th from 6pm - 9pm at Heron Arts, 7 Heron Street, San Francisco CA 94103.


Last thing...Even if you can't attend, please consider making a tax-deductible donation today. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Organizer

Good Samaritan Family Resource Center

In a nation built by immigrants striving to create a brighter future, Good Samaritan believes struggling newcomer families and their children deserve the opportunity to succeed in their new home, and to strengthen our shared democracy. Every day, we help young children, youth and their families to obtain the skills, support and resources they need to overcome the challenges of poverty and displacement, and to improve the world we share.

Our mission is to help immigrant families access needed services, develop self-sufficiency, and participate fully as members of the community.

For over 120 years Good Samaritan has helped immigrants to San Francisco from around the world to build their futures in their new home. Today, we mainly work with low-income Latino immigrants from Mexico, Central and South America.
