Created in 1989, the San Francisco Department of Children, Youth & Their Families (known as DCYF) is the arm within city government focused exclusively on ensuring that young people—ages 0 through 17—become healthy, productive, and valued community members. Over the years, DCYF has become a powerful, creative, and informed voice within city government and throughout the country.

DCYF achieves its mission by:

  • Strategic stewardship of the city’s landmark Children’s Fund
  • Creating innovative partnerships within government and with the community
  • Researching and promoting policies and a shared agenda to make San Francisco a family-friendly city
  • Engaging the public, particularly youth and parents, in accessing services and participating in the policymaking process.
