PARS Equality Center
PARS Equality Center | Nonprofit Organization
Pars places great emphasis on swiftly responding to the community’s needs. Its programming spans multiple categories, including social/legal services.
Iranians who have arrived in the U.S. recently (including political refugees and asylees) often have few or limited financial resources and need support in order to establish themselves in this country.
The Social Services Department of Pars Equality Center serves and advocates for Iranian families and individuals in need, especially refugees, asylees and those living in poverty. Our Farsi-speaking staff help new arrivals and other low-income Iranian families or individuals successfully adjust to living in the San Francisco Bay Area and overcome barriers to self-sufficiency.

Legal Department Services
Often members of the community have legal questions and do not know where to seek assistance. Pars’ legal team serves individuals by providing a starting point, with initial guidance, analysis and information in various areas of the law, including but not limited to immigration law.
Although Pars’ legal team generally does not represent individuals and is not a referral service agency, the attorneys will do their best to guide individuals in the right direction where additional legal services are required beyond initial analysis and research.
Pars’ mission is to act as a catalyst for the social, cultural and economic integration of Iranian-Americans, and other Persian-speaking countries into mainstream American society.
As a community-based social and legal services organization, Pars Equality Center is a registered non-profit, dedicated to helping the Iranian-American and other Persian-speaking communities realize their full potential as informed, self-reliant, and responsible members of the American society.
Pars Equality Center achieves its mission primarily by providing extensive social and legal services. Our multi-lingual-staff including case managers and attorneys serve the needs of our community by providing a full range of professional social services and legal representation.
Pars Equality Center is a community-based social and legal service organization dedicated to helping all members of the Iranian-American community.
