San Francisco Department of Children, Youth and Their Families

DCYF's funding represents over 17 percent of the city's overall budget for children and youth, and approximately one third of local dollars spent on children. In 2008, they launched their Anchor Institution Initiative by selecting the Jamestown Community Center, Cameron House, Bay View Hunters Point YMCA, and Portola Family Connections to receive yearly grants. The mission of this initiative is to provide funding, coaching, and peer learning to enhance the impact of these organizations on the community. With increased subsidized employment opportunities, the DCYF set a goal in 2010 to find employment for 1,000 San Franciscan parents.
