Dear FACES SF Community: As I reflect on and celebrate our accomplishments of the past year, I feel very appreciative and energized by our efforts and commitments. As we prepare to meet the challenges and opportunities of a new year, I am happy to report that:

  • FACES SF ended our fiscal year in the black, with revenue exceeding expenses, and we project to do the same in 2013.
  • FACES SF is fully enrolled, with two new classrooms opened this year and a waiting list to boot.
  • FACES SF strengthened its leadership staff and added three key staff positions in the executive, fiscal and operations departments. We will continue to upgrade and develop our staff with trainings and support throughout 2013. We have reviewed and implemented pay, retirement and benefits policies to help us be more competitive and sustainable.
  • FACES SF strengthened its Jobs Program by acquiring technical support from the City, thereby enabling the program to exceed our yearly goals. We initiated a 5-year partnership with a Family Resource Center, and served as a listening post for the community.
  • We standardized our policies and procedures across the board and have raised quality and performance standards to meet our new goals.

In 2013, FACES SF will focus on the following goals:  Read the rest of the article.

New Grants from JP Morgan Chase & State Street

jpm logo ssf logoWe are pleased to announce that FACES SF has received two new corporate grants to support our programs. We have received $75,000 from the JP Morgan Chase Foundation in support of our Family Support Program. The Family Support Program provides skills-building and counseling to low-income parents as they strive to be successful in their lives and to become better caregivers. We have also received $10,000 from the State Street Foundation in support of our Jobs Program. Located in Visitacion Valley, the Jobs Program provides jobseekers in San Francisco with the comprehensive training and support services they need to help them  find and retain jobs.

Thanks so much to The JP Morgan Chase Foundation and the State Street Foundation for their generous support of our mission.
