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 below 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. Visit the Policy Partnerships page for more information on the many partnerships DCYF has forged.
One of DCYF's crucial partnerships is with the Office of Early Care and Education (OECE). The OECE aligns and coordinates programs and funding streams from the DCYF, the San Francisco First Five Commission, and the Human Services Agency to serve children ages zero to five in San Francisco. The OECE's goals are to improve access to early care and education, improve early care and education workforce, and build early care and education system capacity.
