Dear San Francisco Achievers supporters,
At San Francisco Achievers, we are doing our part to keep staff, volunteers and our students safe. All staff are working from home and all in-person programs have been suspended until further notice. Utilizing virtual tools, we are still empowering our high school and college students providing food, masks, technology, academic support and most importantly encouragement. Thank you for your continued support.

Our staff have been in regular communication with students, their families and our strategic partners like DCYF and SFUSD. We are sharing information on useful resources, including the list of school sites that are providing free to go meals for youth 18 years and under. We are doing our best to stay on top of the updates and information that is coming in daily from local and statewide officials. Starting Tuesday March 17, we are under new guidance in the Bay Area along with five other Bay Area counties,  including Alameda and Contra Costa,  the “shelter in place” order until at least May 31st. For local updates please check your local news outlets and for Covid-19 updates from the CA Department of Public Health, please click here

With gratitude,
San Francisco Achievers Team
