Wu Yee means "protector of children" in Cantonese and the organization's mission is to create opportunities for children to be healthy, for families to thrive, and for communities to be strong. This non-profit was founded in 1977 by social workers and parents concerned about challenges facing new immigrants in Chinatown. They now deliver a comprehensive range of child development, family, and provider services and are not only a city-scale agency serving diverse families throughout SF but also the city's largest provider of Early Head Start. 

Join us for a Community Development Day and Family Event with Bay Area nonprofit, Wu Yee Children's Service's Kirkwood Child Development Center. This Early Head Start and Head Start Center is located in the Hunter's Point neighborhood and serves 68 children and their families.

Volunteers will be given an opportunity to conduct games, read to children, dance, and help with general exterior clean-up, garden planting, washing and sanitizing toys. Wu Yee is inviting the Center's children and families to participate.

Wu Yee’s Child Development Program fosters children’s individual growth and development. The curriculum is play-based and designed to grow with each child. It support cultural diversity and dual language learning in a safe and stable environment. Wu Yee works with families, volunteers, guests, and staff to create a thriving and supportive community for the children.

Wu Yee's Center Based Program serves families with children from 3 months through age 5 with full-day, year-round, comprehensive services in licensed child development centers. Wu Yee has 12 centers located throughout San Francisco.
