Founded in 1889, Family Service Agency of San Francisco is the oldest nonsectarian, nonprofit charitable social-services provider in the City and County of San Francisco. Our mission is to strengthen families by providing caring, effective, and innovative social services, with special emphasis on the needs of low-income families, children, and the elderly and disabled people, thus improving the quality of life for all San Franciscans.
Full Circle Family Program (FCFP) offers outpatient mental-health services for multicultural, low-income children, ages 4-21, and their throughout San Francisco. FCFP is an innovative child and family-focused program that utilizes evidence-based practices and interventions which have been shown to help youth succeed within the context of their families. We believe that, regardless of the setting in which youth may be exhibiting challenges; the family has the strengths necessary to develop their own goals on behalf of their children. Our focus is to facilitate their success. Thus, our philosophy is truly to honor family strengths, to join with families in developing their own solutions; and to offer support that has significant evidence as to its effectiveness. We reach out to communities in which our youth live and provide services in the location that best meets the needs of the youth and their family.
