PRC's mission is to support the economic security of Pacifica families and individuals by providing a safety net of food, housing assistance, and other critical services, including coaching, advocacy, information, and referral.

Last year, PRC served 1 in 10 Pacifica families with food, housing support & other critical services!*

Provided over 600,000 lbs. food to benefit nearly 27,000 Pacifica children, adults, and seniors
Prevented homelessness and sheltered 122 Pacificans
Prepared taxes for 188 households, generating nearly $220,000 in refunds and saving taxpayers $40,000 in tax preparation fees

Provided happy holidays to 224 children through our Holiday Gift Program, as well as Thanksgiving assistance to 527 Pacificans.

"Fund" Fact: for every $1 Pacifica Resource Center receives from the City, we leverage another $14 in support for our community. Since 2004, PRC has received $83,000 each year from the city to provide a safety net of food, housing assistance, and other critical services to Pacifica residents. This investment generates nearly $1,200,000 in goods and services that would otherwise not be available in Pacifica.
