DCYF’s core investments are designed to ensure children are ready to learn and succeed in school. Therefore, the Department is committed to supporting our key partner, the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), as it strengthens and improves education and comprehensive services for children. DCYF will continue to align its investments, from early childhood through young adulthood, with school district priorities and efforts to support its students. The map on the right indicates the DCYF/SFUSD partnership grantees.
Beyond the partnership with SFUSD, DCYF is proud to work with other City departments and community-based organizations to further the Department's mission of ensuring that children, youth and families are a prominent and valued segment of San Francisco's social fabric.
The City & County of San Francisco and the San Francisco Unified School District have created an incredible array of strong partnerships aimed at bolstering the ability of San Francisco’s public schools to provide quality education and comprehensive services for San Francisco children. These Partnerships are based on a common goal: ensuring that the city’s children grow into productive, independent, and healthy adults.
DCYF funds services delivered by community-based organizations and district offices in almost every SFUSD school. Click the link below for overviews of the DCYF funded CBOs delivering services both on and off campus at each SFUSD middle and high school:
A signature of DCYF is the leadership role the department plays in forging partnerships with other city departments and community organizations.
