FranDelJA was established in 2000 to meet the needs of children and families residing in the Bayview Hunters Point Community.

This was the culmination of a lifelong vision of two local women who dreamed of enriching the community they resided in and loved. Gladys Harris and Sandra Young, sisters, managed to ignite the imagination of the various community leaders who also saw the need for high-quality programs in our community.

Realizing the need for a high-quality childcare facility, Ms. Harris and Ms. Young, brought FranDelJA Enrichment Center to the community. Known as FranDelJA, the center has been honored and celebrated for the work that it continues to provide for the children of the community.
