What Departments and Employees are saying about the ACE Program!

Gender Health SF and SFDPH are privileged to have an employee through the ACE Program. She has single-handedly changed the culture of the environment that her patients walk into to make the services accessible and make her patients feel safe, respected and trauma-informed.

Director of Gender Health SF
Department of Public Health (DPH)

As someone that has faced discrimination in the past from previous employers and struggles with mental health issues, I would have felt very intimidated by the City and County hiring process. I would have never considered even applying for the City and County if it weren't for the ACE Program and my current supervisor.

The process was very quick including interview time, background investigation, assessment, and badging. The ACE Recruiter was efficient in providing job requisitions for employment via email and was always very informative if I had questions. It was that support and encouragement that inspired me to apply for the ACE Program.

If I had to give any advice to job seekers, I would say it’s worth the time and effort to follow through on positons you’re interested in through the ACE Program.

I’m really excited to have participated in the ACE Program. It got me a career with the City and County, which has always been my dream. I thought I would not get this job until after licensure, but I was able to fulfill a dream due to ACE.

The ACE Program gave me the right tools and resources. It gave me the opportunity to learn how to properly fill out job applications, receive an overview of how to obtain an ACE certification form, and how to upload the certification form, explore the different possibilities that the City and County of San Francisco has in store for applicants such as: Civil Service and Non-Civil Service routes, understanding the various appointment types, and all of the current ACE level recruitments.

I would like to sincerely thank the ACE Recruiter for the support, gratitude, encouragement, professionalism and workforce development through my process, which for me was extremely difficult not knowing that my childhood trauma resulted in a disability. I could not have asked for a better team of individuals to work with as a Clerk and beginning a new endeavor which will lead to success through my hard work and perseverance.
