Welcome to the Puerto Rican Family Institute, Inc. The Institute was founded in 1960 by a group of social workers whose primary goals were to prevent family disintegration and promote the self sufficiency of the Latino community. The Institute is a nationally recognized leader in the field of social, educational, child placement, prevention and mental health services. Today, we provide a comprehensive array of services that are culturally and linguistically relevant to children, youth, adults and families, regardless of their ethnic, gender or cultural background.
For over 50 years, families, children and communities have benefitted from our services located in New York, New Jersey and Puerto Rico.
