A world where each family enjoys physical, emotional, and spiritual health and each individual is supported to achieve their true potential.
Sikh Family Center’s mission is to promote healthy and violence-free families across the United States by providing community education and support services, facilitating access to public resources, and empowering grassroots community leadership. Our intervention, prevention, and education are provided with particular attention to cultural tradition, immigration experience, and language capability.
Principle 1: Resisting Gender & Cultural Essentialism.
SFC recognizes the unique nature of our community while refusing to over-state challenges as unique only to (the often misunderstood) Sikh community, or exclusively to women.
Principle 2: Learning from Our Community.
SFC strives to respond to documented needs rather than documenting effectiveness after first applying a prescription, and has conducted a needs assessment survey over the last two years.
Principle 3: Community-wide Services & Empowerment.
SFC provides services for all members of the community as it seeks to delink any issue from being particular to only one segment of the community. SFC works with the entire family, in turn hoping to involve the entire community.
