“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou
The Chicano Federation is comprised of volunteers, employees, partners, donors and friends who believe in one thing…opportunity for all San Diegans. The Chicano Federation builds resiliency and promotes self-sufficiency through their programs for child development and nutrition, housing, workforce and business development, and the San Diego Latino Health Coalition. More than 7,000 children are served healthy meals every day through the Chicano Federation’s network of 850+ licensed daycare homes. The Chicano Federation manages 9 apartment complexes with more than 300 units with rents below market rate. Home based programs offer guidance in parenting and child development education, community resources, services for children with disabilities, and transportation. These programs as well as Leslie Garcia’s work at the San Diego Latino Health Coalition, has had such a positive impact in our community that the Chicano Federation was named the 2020 California Nonprofit of the Year.
