||Swiss Benevolent Society
of San Francisco
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 Carla Twitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org. All information is kept confidential.
