Who do we serve?

The Children’s Fund serves foster and low-income children, newborn to age 18, in San Mateo County. The children we serve must be referred by their County case manager. This year, we expect to serve more than 4,500 children and teens.

  • Must be referred by a social worker, case worker, public health nurse, probation officer, other San Mateo County staff.
