Our Mission

Family and Child Empowerment Services - San Francisco (FACES SF), a community-based non-profit organization, represents the legacy of two of San Francisco’s longstanding non-profit organizations: Florence Crittenton Services and Whitney young Child Development Center.

FACES SF provides critical assistance to low income families citywide, with a focus in Haight Ashbury, Western Addition, Visitacion Valley, and Bayview Hunters Point neighborhoods in the following areas: early childhood development, workforce training, school age enrichment programs, and family support services. Our mission is to nurture, teach and empower San Francisco’s children and families to transform their lives.
