Outreach and Access
The Outreach and Access Service Area helps to ensure that children, youth and families are both aware of available services and are able to access them. These services support all of DCYF’s Service Areas by providing the underlying resources needed to inform community members about, and connect them to, services.
In the Outreach and Access Service Area, DCYF supports a range of efforts, initiatives and pilots designed to broadly share information and increase usage of the other services DCYF funds. These services include DCYF’s nutrition programs, the San Francisco Healthy Kids Initiative and the Street Violence Intervention Program as well as exploration of a children, youth and family focused transportation network, support for continued efforts to build a web based tool to seamlessly connect youth to programming, and other outreach and access efforts that ensure wide knowledge of our services, especially for those most in need.
