32 Years and Counting!
The San Francisco Foster Youth Fund (formerly Workers’ Children’s Fund) was established in 1986 by Child Welfare Workers of the San Francisco Department of Human Services (DHS).
The organization was formed in response to what was seen as a serious shortfall in available resources for abused and neglected children who had been receiving services through DHS.
The Fund has continued to expand the range of services offered throughout the years, most significantly with the addition of a College Scholarship program in 1991. The SFFYF board has always enjoyed a cooperative relationship with DHS management and staff.
