In 1916, leading members of the San Francisco Italian community, such as A.P. Giannini, Marco Fontana and Andrea Sbarboro, established the Italian-American Community Services Agency.
They had a dream. Successful in their own lives, these leaders wanted to help their Italian brethren.
Italian Community Services provides Bay Area Italian-American individuals and families with trusted resources to help them live healthy, independent and productive lives. We are committed to honoring and preserving the Italian language and culture, with an emphasis on the strength and support that comes from family, community, education and goodwill.
Help Keep the Dream Alive
Italian Community Services receives no funding from the government or other agencies. This allows us the ability to identify the needs of our clients and act quickly in the way we think best.
At the same time, this means that we are entirely dependent upon the direct participation and contributions of many good people.
