SBS Swiss Benevolent Society
of San Francisco

Assistance


The original and primary mission of the Swiss Benevolent Society was and is to provide one-time or ongoing assistance - help with paying bills, shopping or transportation - as well as companionship to Swiss living in Northern California.

Contrary to popular belief, there are Swiss in need. Usually, it is:

  • a sudden, monetary crisis brought on by a death or divorce (50%)

  • failing health and age, compounded by a lack of family living nearby who could help (40%).

  • someone who needs help while government assistance (US or Swiss) is arranged (10%).

We depend on the Swiss Community to alert us to cases. If you know of someone who needs help, please contact Ariana Ghelfi at assistance@sbssf.com. All information is kept confidential.
