Through a variety of high quality services, the Federation has helped thousands of people achieve their goals for a better life for them and their families.

For over 40 years, the Chicano Federation has improved neighborhoods, provided services for children, seniors and families, and has been a fierce advocate for the powerless. The Federation is an indispensable part of the fabric of San Diego and our community is better for it.
