Position Title: Associate Director of Community Education & Partnerships

Department: Community Education & Partnerships (CEP)

Reports to: Chief Program Officer

Location: 3450 3rd Street, San Francisco, CA 94124


Safe & Sound is a children’s advocacy organization working to prevent child abuse and reduce its devastating impact on the child, their family, and our entire community. We have been a pioneer in the field of child abuse prevention, working within San Francisco for more than 50 years. Recently, the organization has begun to expand its impact working throughout the state of California.

Child maltreatment is a complex problem, but a preventable one. Our data-informed approach leverages three primary strategies: we empower children with knowledge and confidence; we support families providing resources and skills; we activate the community and the change-makers within it to create a thriving social safety net for children and their families.

The organization has an annual operating budget of approximately $15.4 million and is supported by approximately 70 staff, interns, and more than 80 volunteers. Safe & Sound headquarters is located in a historic firehouse in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, with a second office in the Bayview neighborhood.

Safe & Sound recently merged with The Center for Youth Wellness (CYW), a national leader in the effort to advance pediatric medicine, raise public awareness, and transform the way society responds to children exposed to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Founded by California’s first Surgeon General Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, CYW has created a national call to screen, treat, and heal ACEs and toxic stress.
