Join us on Wednesday 6/11 to tell the Mayor and Board of Supervisors to make it stronger than ever before:

  • Include disconnected transitional age youth to age 24, to ensure we provide a continuum of services that support young people transitioning to adulthood!
  • Increase the Fund to meet unmet need for children and youth 0-17 in San Francisco, as well as for disconnected transitional age youth!
  • Include a commission overseeing the Department of Children, Youth and their Families, to ensure transparency and accountability!
  • Eliminate the sunset date for the Fund!

To RSVP or to get more information, please email Chelsea.
