Who We Are:
For more than a century, the agency has remained at the forefront of best practices in child welfare. Today, Sunny Hills is a nationally recognized agency operating 15 distinct programs throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area. This year, Sunny Hills will serve more than 700 young people through an array of programs focused on the educational, mental health, housing and developmental needs of vulnerable youth. Here are snapshots of some of our services: *transitional housing and services to youth emancipating from foster care, to give then a strong start at living independently; *housing and support for pregnant and parenting teens in foster care, to help ensure their kids stay out of foster care; *a specialized school for young children whose emotional or learning disabilities are so severe they cannot function in public school settings, allowing them to learn and thrive; *intervention, diagnosis and treatment of mental health needs of juvenile offenders, significantly reducing their return rate to juvenile hall *gang prevention and intervention activities that provide a constructive alternative connection for at risk youth
