Faces SF


On July 1, 2011 Florence Crittenton Services merged with Whitney Young Child Development Center. In its new capacity, Family & Child Empowerment Services San Francisco (FACES SF), we share a history of more than 170 years of serving San Francisco's most vulnerable people and provide a comprehensive continuum of care to strengthen and support families in San Francisco's Bayview-Hunter's Point, Visitacion Valley, Western Addition, and Haight Ashbury neighborhoods. We serve approximately 1,500 individuals annually.

Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog

We support IEP's for speech, language needs, and autism.

FACES SF provides subsidized child care at three sites in the City: we serve 0 to 12 years old. Services are delivered in English, Spanish, and Chinese. Children are given age-appropriate learning opportunities including trips to the park, arts and crafts, and other activities that promote healthy emotional and intellectual development. We also provide before and after school enrichment programs for K-6th graders.
