The mission of the San Francisco Children and Families Commission is to instill an enduring obligation in San Francisco residents and government to ensure the opportunity for optimal health and development for every child living in this county. This means a commitment to support young children and their families from prenatal to five years of age through abundant opportunities to be healthy, learn, and grow. Children will reach their full potential. Families will be empowered and engaged civic partners in the work of the Commission.
All children will thrive in supportive, nurturing, and loving families and communities. Children from birth to five years of age will be safe, healthy, and stimulated. They will be supported in their physical, emotional and cognitive development. They will start school eager to learn and grow with confidence and connections to families, community, and society.
