The City and County of San Francisco Human Services Agency (HSA) seeks proposals from qualified organizations to provide supportive services for relative caregiver families of children and youth who have been in the San Francisco child welfare dependency system.
The proposed grant will serve two target groups: (1) relative caregivers and the San Francisco court dependent children placed in their care and (2) relative caregivers and the adoptive/legal guardian children in their care. In order for a relative caregiver to qualify for this program, at least one of the children in the home must be under the age of 21 and must have previously been a San Francisco court dependent.
