Join our Board of Directors!

We are currently seeking interested professionals to apply for membership on our Board of Directors.

Family Support Services was founded in 1989. Today, with an operating budget of $5 million, and a staff of 53 employees, we serve nearly 1,000 families each year. Our mission is to nurture children, youth, and caregivers to keep families healthy and intact. With offices in Oakland and San Francisco, Family Support Services provides assistance families in San Francisco, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties.

The Agency's programs target families, youth, and children whose health and welfare are vulnerable as a result of a variety of circumstances. We have a system of supportive programs, with each one focused on keeping children in positive, healthy homes where they are safe and able to thrive. 

The next several years promise to be exciting ones for Family Support Services. The Agency recently completed its strategic plan and is focused on adding professionals to the board with expertise in finance, marketing/branding, and fund development.   

If you are a professional willing to take on a leadership role with a non-profit focused on families and children, we may be the right place for you to have a positive impact on the Bay Area.
