Samoan Community Development Center


SCDC was founded in San Francisco in 1991 as a non-profit organization (501.c.3), with a mission to improve the quality of life for Samoans and Pacific Islanders through self-help, economic self-sufficiency, community solidarity, education, and the preservation of customs and traditions. We treat all persons with respect and dignity, provide services that are culturally and linguistically appropriate.


Kids with special needs are welcome, on a case by case basis. Counselors will do their best to accommodate their needs, but may not be trained to manage the requirements of every child.
