WHO WE SERVE
From the CEO
Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in Richmond Area Multi-Services, Inc. (RAMS). Founded in 1974, our original focus was to serve the Asian American populations living in the Richmond District of San Francisco due to the lack of culturally and linguistically appropriate mental health services at the time. Subsequently, RAMS has come to serve the Russian speaking population and the rest of the multicultural and multilingual communities in San Francisco and beyond. Today, we serve over 19,000 individuals annually across the Bay Area at more than 130 service sites in over 30 languages and dialects. Our dedicated and committed professional and peer staff embody the principles of respect, humility, cultural responsiveness, innovation, and excellence. We strive to make mental wellness an integral part of every person’s daily healthcare practices.
We welcome you to learn more and engage with RAMS. Visit or join our teams of dedicated professionals enthusiastically serving our communities to make every day a meaningful experience.
