About Peninsula Family Service

More than six decades ago, Peninsula Family Service—then known as the Family Service Agency of San Mateo County—was created to strengthen and maintain local families. Over the years, our original staff of two has grown to 150 employees who support participants in four Bay Area counties: San Benito, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and San Mateo. Together with the help of our board, advisors, donors, volunteers, and partners, we serve nearly 10,000 individuals who need our help overcoming the barriers standing between themselves and a life of opportunity, financial stability, and wellness.

By supporting our region’s vulnerable and overlooked populations, we strengthen the entire community. We create a strong network of resources for older adults as baby boomers look to age in place. We provide tools that encourage personal and financial stability for the increasing number of families affected by our region’s widening income disparities. We prevent the income-achievement gap in our children through a comprehensive early learning program, and prepare them for enhanced scholastic achievement.
