Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer, Counseling, Health, Mental Health

Mission: Circulo de Vida's mission is to walk alongside Latinos living with cancer and their families as they find their way through the fear, confusion, and uncertainty of a cancer diagnosis. We aim to reduce the devastating effects of a cancer diagnosis by helping Latinos identify coping skills that will support their ability to meet the challenge of a frightening disease.

Results: We've worked very hard over the past four years to keep our doors open. As many non-profits, Circulo has been affected by the poor state of the economy. But we are hanging in and everyone referred to us has received the services they need to make it through a diagnosis of cancer.

Programs: Support Groups for Women, Men & Children Home & Hospital Visits, In-hospital support Individual Counseling Las Angelitas Peer Mentoring In Hospital Support Spanish Lang. Look Good/Feel Better Program Educational classes Resources and Information Program Internships Program Development Facilitator Training Outreach

A cancer diagnosis is devasting on a family. Imagine receiving that diagnosis and not fully understanding because you do not speak the language and you feel you have no where to turn.
Circulo de Vida gives people a place to turn for real information and support. They are an essential service for the SF community. Thank you to all the volunteers who work to maintain this center!

After having worked with many non-profit organizations in the SF Bay Area who address the issue of cancer for Spanish-speaking women, this one stands out! Circulo de Vida Cancer Support and Resource Center is located in the heart of the community, has bilingual staff that is culturally competent on the issue of cancer and understands the important role of familia.

They provide clients with accurate, up-to-date and thorough information and support.

Circulo de Vida is a place where survivors and people with cancer come for upliftment and encouragement. They become empowered by others who are experiencing the same turmoil and have the courage to face this dreaded disease.
Circulo de Vida is a safe place where Latinos with cancer feel heard and their emotions and feelings validated. THANK YOU CIRCULO DE VIDA!
