Your agency is part of history in San Francisco: the first generation of DCYF grantees to receive funding following the reauthorization
of the Children and Youth Fund. The DCYF staff and I respect and appreciate the time, effort, and resources that your agency dedicated
to becoming a DCYF grantee, and we extend to you a very warm welcome to the DCYF Family!
In order to ensure that your agency has the information you need to understand the processes and procedures that will impact your
funding, all of our grantees will participate in a series of New Grantee Orientation Sessions.
DCYF designed the New Grantee Orientation Sessions using the following four Guiding Principles:
- Establishing Our Partnership. We consider your agency a full partner in our mission to provide all children and
youth the opportunities and resources that will help them reach their full potential.
- Setting Up Your Agency for Success. We understand that high quality programming is bolstered by the strength
of the agency providing it. The New Grantee Orientation will include programmatic-focused sessions
by service area and a fiscally-focused session that will help your agency understand what to expect
as a DCYF grantee and set up the work we will do together.
- Building Relationships. Our shared work leverages the relationships that your agency has with the DCYF staff.
Establishing, maintaining, and nurturing our relationships with each other will have the effect of yielding
better results for the children, youth, and families we will serve.
- Planning for the Future. Unanticipated needs during the funding cycle are likely to arise, and we must be agile
enough to make necessary adjustments. We plan to share insight and guidance that will help your agency
and our staff to know what we need to do in order to successfully conduct our work.
DCYF is excited to have you as a part of 2018-23 portfolio of grantees! Together we will provide services that will strengthen the lives
of children, youth, Transitional Age Youth, their families, and the people who serve them. Our powerful investment in services for our
children and youth throughout their development will make San Francisco an even greater place to grow up. I look forward to working with
you on this mission.
