Family support programs and systems improve the ability of families’ to support children’s lifelong success.
Since 2009, San Francisco has been home to the Family Resource Center Initiative, a system of Family Resource Centers funded by First 5 San Francisco; the Department of Children Youth, and their Families; and San Francisco Human Services Agency.
The Family Resource Center Initiative’s partners share a common vision, goals, and focus on quality. A carefully designed funding model allows each Family Resource Center to base its services on the needs of its neighborhood and target population. Research conducted on funded centers shows that services are equipping families to support their children’s readiness for kindergarten and ongoing school success.
