Message from our Chief Executive Officer

Welcome and thank you for visiting The Fresno Center website. I am Pao Yang, Chief Executive Officer


For nearly three decades, The Fresno Center (TFC) was known as the place that assists Southeast Asian refugees in acclimating to the U.S. and becoming productive U.S citizens. During the height of the Hmong refugee resettlement 2004-2005, our agency provided education and empowerment services involving social integration, health education and housing for our growing Hmong, Cambodian, Lao and Vietnamese population.


Today, TFC offers 20 different support services that include mental health, wellness and healing from immigration to education advocacy to clinical behavioral to holistic wellness services, TFC is the one stop shop that promotes cross cultural understanding and cultural preservation. Thus, our motto, Inspire. Encourage. Cultivate.


Our website is a navigation tool to our programs, services, calendar and news.

We continuously focus on:

• Quality – exceptional quality delights our clients and is essential to client growth and retention.

• Service – at TFC service is not simply a concept. It’s how we develop and maintain client loyalty.

• Innovation – it is the driving force behind our long -term growth.

• Peak performance – our commitment is to equip staff with training and best practices, so we    do our best.


Looking to the future, and our next stage of growth, it is important to remember what first inspired this non-profit to succeed. Our founders, Dr. Tony Vang and Lue Yang set the example for us to follow with their passion for excellence in service. That passion remains to be the lifeblood of TFC and continues to translate into tremendous success. As testament to this, TFC grown to over 80 employees and is becoming an employer of choice. 


On behalf of TFC I invite you to explore our website and learn more about all we have to offer. I am sure you will see why we love what we do.
