San Francisco's Our Children Our Families Council

 

We are all deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Mayor Edwin Lee.  It was through his vision and support that the Our Children Our Families Council was established. His pride and commitment was seen daily through all of the work we each do to ensure our children, youth, and their families live in safe and nurturing environments, attain economic security and housing stability, are physically, emotionally, and mentally healthy, thrive in a 21st century learning environment and succeed in post-secondary and/or career paths. It was with this framework that he envisioned a shared agenda for our children, youth, and their families to thrive in San Francisco. His passion and commitment to the families of San Francisco will be deeply missed.
