Sikh Family Center
Nationwide Helpline: 408-800-SEVA (7382)
Our non-emergency helpline is the first of its kind for the Sikh American community. When someone calls the Helpline, a trained peer counselor responds within 48 hours to discuss available options, provide crisis intervention and appropriate referrals to existing resources in their local community.
The Sikh Family Center is a grassroots community-based organization that helps create healthy, violence-free, more equitable communities by bridging gaps in access to public resources and social services, and providing education and direct support to community members using an empowerment approach that attends to cultural tradition, immigration experiences, and language access. To this end, SFC partners with broad network of volunteers, faith-based institutions, nonprofit & government agencies within and outside the Sikh community, and across the U.S. to facilitate:
Outreach, Education & Activism (teen empowerment workshops, resource creation, health awareness campaigns)
Access to Social Services (crisis counseling, domestic violence prevention & response, peer support)
Creative Cultural Expression (art/music/poetry spotlights, community art events)
