ABOUT CHILDREN’S COUNCIL
For more than 45 years, Children’s Council has been the heart of child care and early education in San Francisco, advancing the belief that high-quality child care can transform lives and communities. Our more than 120 team members help families navigate their child care and preschool options and secure financial assistance to pay for it. We provide home-based child care businesses with the training and resources to succeed. Through a wide range of free programs and workshops, we support parents and caregivers as they build child development skills. As the city’s second-largest nonprofit contractor, with an annual budget of over $100 million, we are a major stakeholder in the
child care system. We educate the public and advocate for increased investment in early education
at the local and state level. If you are a child care champion, we want you on our team.
Under the supervision of the Child Care Family Manager, the Family Services Specialist II (FSS II) supports low income families in and around San Francisco by evaluating and maintaining their eligibility to receive financial assistance to pay for childcare in any or all Subsidy programs at Children’s Council. The FSS II is a trusted resource for families navigating intricate program requirements and seeking information or referrals to other supportive services and community resources. With the ability to prioritize and multitask competently, the FSSII coordinates multiple family and program-driven deliverables to provide the best possible support to families within a complex regulatory environment.
