Our History


Through strategic planning, TFC has grown from a staff of 3 in the height of newly arriving Hmong refugees in 2004-2005, to a staff of nearly 100 currently. TFC was the lead organization in establishing the Hmong Resettlement Task Force in partnership with other local ethnic agencies, elected officials, and government service providers. One of the core service providers included the Federal Office of Refugee Resettlement. 

Since 1991, TFC has focused on mental health, education, employment services and civic engagement. TFC’s founder and first Executive Director is Dr. Tony Vang. Lue N. Yang assumed the position in 1992 after Dr. Vang assumed a teaching position at CSU Stanislaus.
