In a nation built by immigrants striving to create a brighter future, Good Samaritan believes struggling newcomer families and their children deserve the opportunity to succeed in their new home, and to strengthen our shared democracy. Every day, we help young children, youth and their families to obtain the skills, support and resources they need to overcome the challenges of poverty and displacement, and to improve the world we share.
Friends of St. Francis Childcare Center, a community based non-profit, endeavors to enrich San Francisco and the world by providing best practice childcare services to culturally and economically diverse families while serving parents through an enduring community of staff, peer parent and professional support.
FranDelJA's philosophy is a multi-layered approach built upon the foundation that each child deserves a warm, stimulating environment that fosters positive self-esteem and develops the love of learning.

We approach all learning components with the knowledge that children's play is their work.
