Our Collaborations


Legal Services for Children (LSC) strongly believes in upholding values of equity, safety, and justice for the communities we serve. We collaborate with the following community partners to create a holistic approach to transformative justice and to better equip our clients for times of opportunity and adversity.





Since 2013, Close the Gap has organized regular community town hall meetings on school climate, the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and other important equity issues. We advocate for new strategies and increased resources to implement the Safe and Supportive Schools Policy, improve school climate and reduce suspensions that disproportionately impact students of color. The coalition is convened by a Steering Committee including representatives from Coleman Advocates for Children and Youth, United Educations of San Francisco, SEIU Local 1021, Jobs with Justice,  Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, Legal Services for Children, and SF Families Union.

The Center for Somatic Psychotherapy (CSP) trainees and interns are profoundly dedicated to the individuals, couples, families, and groups—welcoming people of all ages, racial and cultural backgrounds, bodily expressions, and sexual orientations—from our diverse Bay Area communities who comprise the clientele. In addition to CSP’s student clinicians providing thousands of sessions on-site annually, our passion is making connection with community organizations with the intention to provide support to people who have less or no access to mental health care services.

FREE SF represents the joining of the San Francisco Immigrant Rights Defense Committee (SFIRDC) and the San Francisco Progressive Criminal Justice Network. We are a coalition of organizations advocating for community safety, transformative justice, immigrant rights, and self-determination. Our work was motivated by the issues we witnessed in our immigrant communities in San Francisco.  We used our diverse skills and organizational expertise along with our community power to advocate for policies to uphold our values of equality and immigrant justice in the city and county of San Francisco.
