Department of Children, Youth & Their Families (DCYF)


DCYF creates and facilitates innovative citywide policies and projects in support of children, youth, and families. As a result, children, youth, and families from throughout the City participate in a broad range of programs in the areas of early child care, academic support, health and wellness, youth workforce development, and cultural enrichment.

The staff of 40, led by Director Maria Su, work out of offices at Fox Plaza, near San Francisco’s Civic Center.

DCYF welcomes the participation of children, youth, and families in civic life, provides information to families throughout the city, and supports efforts to keep San Francisco family-friendly.
