The purpose of this Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is to identify a Family Resource Center to provide Promotora or Family Support Specialist services to Family Child Care providers with dual language learner students in their care.  FRC providers will also participate alongside their FCC counterparts in trainings which will offer practical supports for themselves and information regarding providing the FCCs’ families with connection to resources and basic needs supports to address family concerns caused or exacerbated by COVID.

The services will target 15 specific FCCs in the 94110, 94112, 94124 and 94134 zip codes. The targeted FCCs are participating in First 5 California funded activities to provide training, technical assistance and supports.  This funding is available to agencies funded through the First 5 San Francisco Family Resource Center Services Initiative to operate a family resource center.

This RFQ seeks to identify preferably a single Family Resource Center grantee to provide support to the targeted FCCs and their enrolled families.  Services are sought immediately upon approval of a grant and end June 2022.
