Daly City Public Library Associates (DCPLA)

The mission of the Daly City Public Library Associates is to raise private funds to supplement public funding of the Daly City libraries.  Their mission is accomplished by developing community, civic and business support for fundraising, advocacy, and innovative programs that benefit our diverse community and promote greater awareness of the Library’s valuable resources.

Daly City Peninsula Partnership Collaboration

The Daly City Peninsula Partnership was formed in 1995 with a mission to guide collaborative efforts and connect our community to services that promote well-being.

Annually, over $1 Million in quality programs and services are provided to the Northern San Mateo County Community through the Partnership’s collaborative efforts. DCP serves the community with programs and services through Our Second Home Family Resource Center, After School Academic Programs, Healthy Aging Response Team and the Community Action Response Team.

Over 60 agencies, businesses, and institutions comprise The Partnership’s Membership, which meets on a bi-monthly basis to network, share information, foster open, respectful communication, identify key community issues. Partnership members collaborate in providing high-quality, effective programs for our community while avoiding duplication of services. Their vision is to empower a community of people to learn, grow, and achieve a fulfilling life.

Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA

Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA, a private non-profit guided by the humane ethic, builds healthy relationships between people and animals. As an ethical choice, they accept all animals in need of care and often provide a second chance to the neediest animals: those who would otherwise be turned away at so-called “no kill” agencies that accept only highly adoptable animals. They also serve as our County’s provider of animal rescue and control services and, as such, have no control over the number of incoming animals. Their records are outstanding. Since 2003, they have adopted 100% of healthy, adoptable dogs and cats.

San Mateo County Jobs for Youth

San Mateo County Jobs for Youth began in 1982 serving all youth 14-21 years of age who reside in San Mateo County with employment services.  Services do not have specific eligibility or income requirements and they serve all youth regardless of socio-economic or risk level.

The program is designed to help youth increase their self-esteem and gain important job-seeking skills.  The youth will master the job application form, learn to communicate more effectively, gain interviewing skills, receive examples of resumes, cover letters, list of references, and thank you letters/emails to employers.

Their program offers one-on-one support with the goal of attaining gainful employment and becoming responsible adults.
