Welcome to Puerto Rican Family Institute, Inc.!


PRFI is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural social, educational, and healthcare institution servicing all communities in New York City and Puerto Rico. As you navigate our website, I hope you learn more about the qualities that make our Institute an outstanding provider for all the communities we serve. 


We provide service with a human touch


PRFI emphasizes the person first, not just an illness or a disability.  Our primary objective is to focus on the specific needs of the individual or families that we serve.  We strive to develop a detailed plan of action by identifying  our client's individualized needs and to implement care strategies that focus on their strengths, abilities, and opportunities

Our staff are experts in their fields and bring a strong service ethos to everything they do. They take pride and ownership in the jobs they perform. We bring passion, pride, and experience together.


We have a client-first philosophy


We have only one objective is to enhance the functioning and self-sufficiency of diverse marginalized communities and prevent family disintegration.

 PRFI endeavors to ensure our client's personal, psychological, and medical needs are achieved with the highest level of capability and assurance. Our methodologies ensure that evidenced-based treatment is delivered to all.  PRFI’s clients come to us with confidence that we have the experience and expertise to deliver the highest-level outcomes.


We live out our values


PRFI’s corporate culture is defined by a simple set of corporate values that define how we operate every single day – Trust, Care, Innovation, Diversity, Inclusion, and Pride. These values reflect how we interact with our clients, our colleagues, and our communities. We hold each other accountable for creating an Institute we can all be proud to work at.


I hope this introduction provides you with a few reasons to get to know PRFI better. Whether you are a potential customer, a small business partner, or a future employee, we look forward to finding out how we can work together to bring service to life.
