Transforming Lives. Restoring Hope.
Edgewood Center for Children and Families has a bold vision: Success is within the reach of every child. Children deserve a safe place free from abuse and neglect where they can learn and grow.
Founded in San Francisco in 1851 as a refuge for orphans of the Gold Rush, Edgewood is the oldest children’s nonprofit in the western U.S. Today, Edgewood operates residential, community-based, and school-based programs throughout San Francisco, San Mateo, and East Bay (Alameda & Contra Costa) counties among others.
By taking an individual and family-centered approach, Edgewood is able to help thousands of children, youth, and their families each year who are struggling with mental health challenges, achieve their potential.
